Knowledge and understanding: The teaching of Journalism and New Media will allow students to critically analyse the activity – including through new media – of major online newspapers (both mainstream and native) and to learn the basics and leading styles of current journalism. This knowledge will be acquired through targeted teaching tools - lectures, case history, essays, supporting articles and in-depth bibliography - and will be screened with an oral examination test.
Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: the study of journalistic techniques and the main styles used by current and past journalism, even taking into account the techniques of TV and new media, should allow students to learn the practical basis of journalism. This knowledge, together with the practice represented by internships, should confer writing and organising material skills suitable for writing journalistic articles.
Making judgements: At the end of the course, students, based on the theoretical, practical and linguistic knowledge acquired, should have gained the ability to analyze the communication strategies of online newspapers and to make independent judgments.
Communication skills: At the end of the course, students should have achieved the ability to clearly analyze online journalism strategies and be able to argue about them in a scientifically appropriate manner. In addition, if aided by a targeted internship, they should be able to master the main writing styles of journalism and produce journalistically correct articles.
Learning skills: Students should have developed an analytic and methodological ability that can be used in the field in the practice of journalism and be deepened - and expanded - independently, both from further theoretical contributions and through new field data.
