By combining advanced journalism practice and theory with academic studies at the graduate level, the program will not only enhance advanced journalism, but also improve the information base and scholarly preparation of students for journalistic writing in their specialty subject areas. The program will serve the profession of journalism and bring developments in many areas of academic investigation to a wider reading public. Workshops, seminars, tutorials, conferences, and publications will deal with reportage as well as major issues, theories, and developments in the field of journalism. Emphasis is placed on the writing of journalism, the historic evolution of journalism as a profession, ethics and journalism, journalism and the legal system, and the role and character of journalism in a changing society.
