Training students to be media-savvy

Structuring one’s ideas to be read by a lay audience, using social networks to build a community focused on one’s area of expertise, writing a column or being interviewed on camera or the radio are all situations that Sciences Po graduates are likely to face in their professional lives, whatever career they go into.
To prepare students for this type of exercise, the School of Journalism is setting up a “Media and Narrative Centre” which will be open to all Master’s students who want to understand different types of media and how they work.

A new Media & Writing concentration

The School of Journalism’s Media & Narrative Centre, in association with the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA), is going to offer a new Media & Writing concentration starting next academic year.
 
This degree course will accept about sixty students from PSIA aiming for careers in fields ranging from international security, international public management, development and international economic policy to humanitarian action, the environment or energy.
 
“No international professional can avoid being intensely exposed very early on to the principles and codes of the media, or the need to know how to write about and narrate the world so as to shape it more effectively”, said Vanessa Scherrer, vice dean of PSIA.
