The course seeks to combine two of the most important, emerging forms of journalism in order to provide students with a range of skills hitherto ignored in most mainstream journalism courses. Development journalism is an established genre of reporting in the developing world. It deals specifically with issues of nation building and civil society represented by the thousands of development agencies operating in the developing world. Development stories, however, are seldom printed in the mainstream media. This course will take steps to rectify the situation by giving both development and the environment due recognition and provide students with the knowledge and skills to report about it with authority.
