Model Curricula for Journalism Education: A Compendium of New Syllabi.

This publication represents an important instalment in our UNESCO Series on Journalism Education. It comes at a time when journalism education globally is undergoing significant changes, especially following the ongoing technological evolution as well as the global financial and economic crisis that surfaced in 2008.

Since then, media institutions, particularly in developed countries, have come under pressure to adjust to the new realities. More importantly, however, this new global reality poses important challenges for journalism education and how it can take such challenges on board, particularly in a strategic rethink of journalism curricula. In many ways, this present publication is UNESCO’s response to these challenges, which, if not seriously taken up, will have dire consequences for media practice and journalism education in the developing world.
