Bachelor's Degree in Journalism
The degree in Journalism from the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid aims to train professionals in journalism who are able to inform in a multi-faceted way in various different types of media (including institutional or corporate information), adhering to the basic principles which govern journalism. The training also includes the latest concepts of multimedia composition in which they will create reports which can be broadcast in any medium (press, written, Internet, radio, television, mobile phone...).
This new way of composing naturally leads to changes in many working methods but it does not change the fundamental principles of journalism, such as:
- Rigorous reporting of facts and access to the necessary sources and documentation in order to find the truth behind the story
- Criteria for discriminating between what is of public interest and what is mere curiosity about private matters
- The capacity to recognise emerging social trends and to offer appropriate treatment to potentially conflictive social situations. Solid journalistic skills, which go far beyond “political correctness” and the manipulation of newsworthy facts, involve fostering social awareness based on tolerance, respect for human rights, equality between men and women and the enduring presence of personal dignity.
