    Teaching objectives

    The aim of the Media Centre is to familiarise students who so wish with the universe of journalism: content production and editing, distinction between fact and opinion, concision in writing, fact checking techniques, speaking live in an interview, public speaking, the logic and procedures behind information media. Students gain an introduction to all these elements and to journalistic practices as a whole.

    All courses offered are practical in focus and taught by media professionals from the Journalism School’s teaching staff.
