The Study of the U.S. Institute on Journalism and Media hosted by Washington State University, will provide participants with a deeper understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a free press in U.S. society. The Institute will examine the role of journalists in preventing disinformation and explore strategies for media literacy such as critical thinking to counter disinformation. Academic sessions will examine First Amendment rights, technology’s impact on journalism, editorial independence, journalistic ethics, legal constraints, civic journalism, and digital and social media.

The Institute will include opportunities for participants to gain practical experience in the trade craft of journalism, including researching, reporting, writing, and editing. In addition to classroom activities, participants will meet with local news outlets and travel to Atlanta, Georgia, for a study tour. The Institute will end in Washington, D.C. where participants will come together for a closing forum. During the closing forum, participants will have opportunities to network, discuss their action plans, and engage in conversations on relevant topics with local subject matter experts.

Program Funding: All participant costs are covered by the SUSI program.
