【Course Objectives】

Media are containers in which information is poured, whereas journalism produces information contents which are indispensable for development of our society. In the digital information era, containers of information are dramatically changing, but as for contents, what is changing and what is unchanging?  This course examines the present and future of journalism and media.

【Course Contents】

In the heyday of the Internet and social media,
in the United States, alternative online media play a significant role, whereas in Japan, we have no equivalent alternative media. Journalism provides public information and opinion which are indispensable for the existence and development of our society.  But, in our country, no online media provide such public information. Only technology and economy tend to be emphasized in the digital information revolution in this country.  This course focuses upon the present and near future of public communication, examining the past and present of journalism in the United States, Japan and Europe.
