Thursday, 1 March, 2012

Veteran journalist and journalism trainer Magda Abu-Fadil discussed Ethics in Media during a Journalism and Society class at UOWD.

Journalism and Society is the first required subject in the new Master in Media and Communications program at the University.

Abu-Fadil told the students, “never assume anything is true until you have checked it, and always rely on a minimum of two sources to verify information.”

Program Director Dr. Alma Kadragic said, “it’s important that students interact with working journalists and other media experts as they study the theories and history that underlie today’s media practices.”
