JOUR4045 Entrepreneurial Journalism (3 units)
The arrival of the internet has opened up the practice of the news to many non-journalistic actors, ending control over journalists' employment by the traditional mass media - newspapers and broadcasters run by tycoons and governments - and opening up the way for small, independent news businesses. In this changing milieu, journalism entrepreneurship, once represented by the precariously employed freelance minority, is becoming a mainstream career choice. This course aims to prepare students at undergraduate level with the basic knowledge and skills needed to negotiate this new digital media space while upholding journalistic standards and ethics, as well as working in a collaborative environment.
