Ethics in Journalism
and Public Relations
The course deliberately highlights ethical issues in public relations and in journalism and challenges students to have a view on them. The public relations component reviews various codes of ethics of the Public Relations Association of Trinidad and Tobago (PRATT), the Institute of Public Relations (IPR) and the Public Relations Association of America (PRSA). The journalism segment reviews ethical issues such as invasion of privacy, truth in media coverage, sensationalism, protection of sources, and the role of gatekeepers. The code of ethics of the SPJ Society of Professional Journalists is also examined.
Applicants seeking admissions to this short course must be sixteen (16) years and over.
