The world of communication and, in particular, of journalism have undergone deep changes that have increased the demand for professionals able to manage increasingly multifaceted and complex topics with an integrated approach, thanks also to the use of social networks.
Tomorrow 15 June, starting from 5.00 p.m. on UNINETTUNO's Facebook page and live on the portal, Dario E. Viganò - Dean of the Faculty of Communication Sciences - will moderate the DIGITAL TALK for the presentation of the Master's Degree Course in Global Journalism with the participation of Philip Willan - correspondent of the English newspaper “The Times” and currently Vice-President of the Association of the Foreign Press; Valentina Alazraki – Expert of Vatican Affairs of TV Mexico; Maurizio Caprara - columnist of the “Corriere della Sera” and Maarten van Aalderen - Director of the Master's Degree Course and former President of the Association of the Foreign Press.
It will be an opportunity to study in depth not only the topics dealt with in the Master's course which is aimed in particular at young people holding a three-year degree or master's degree, publicists who want to specialize in global communication, business communication operators or press officers and, in general, those who want to develop skills linked to communication on the Web but also to "explore" the boundaries of this profession.
"A new edition which - as Dario Edoardo Viganò said beforehand - joins the new theories of journalism in the digital context with the professionalism of journalists in the field coming not only from the most important Italian newspapers but also from foreign experiences. An opportunity to get closer to the profession but also a useful update in a context of radical change in the production and distribution chains of information".
"A useful occasion for journalists to understand - as Maarten Van Aalderen concluded - how important it is to understand which rules must continue to be respected in a world dominated by social media. Especially now it is important that journalism does not get overwhelmed by the multitude of messages, but continues to stand out for its credibility."
