International Reporting

If you want to be a globe-trotting journalist, then international reporting is for you. Critical issues, global events, international crises and cultural storytelling are important news stories for everyone. That’s where you come in.

Learn from Pulitzer-Prize winners and other experts on acceptable standards of reporting, any limits on a free press, the relationship of some governments with news organizations and cultural sensitivity and ethics.

You might want to work for an international news organization or go oversees to report for U.S. news media. Knowing more than one language makes you especially attractive to employers.
