English course for journalists open [Worldwide]

Posted on June 07, 2018

Anyone can attend this free, self-paced course.

The University of California, Berkeley is offering the Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) "English for Journalists" through edX. The course is divided into two five-week sessions.

The course is designed by the U.S. State Department and other organizations for non-native English speakers who are interested in developing the skills needed for journalism. Students are expected to spend 3 to 4 hours a week.

Participants will understand current issues facing journalists globally; improve their English vocabulary and grammar in order to write more effective stories; communicate more effectively with others in interviews and reports; and learn about issues of ethics, equality and fairness as they apply to journalism.

Registration is ongoing.
