A Project of the Manship School of Mass Communication

Forum's Mission

The Forum on Media Diversity is designed to serve inclusiveness by seeking resources,
supporting research,
stimulating dialogue, sponsoring programs and sharing techniques.

Syllabi on Media Diversity and Diversity Courses

Teaching is the heart of good journalism/mass communication programs, and diversity is the heart of good teaching. Good ideas contribute to good teaching, and good ideas are better if they’re shared.  That’s why the Forum on Media Diversity developed this web page on media diversity syllabi. It seeks to serve as a resource to facilitate the development of curricula and to help us all improve our teaching. The syllabi on these pages were provided by faculty colleagues at universities across the country. With few exceptions, we tried to use updated syllabi for this site. Some faculty authorized us to use their old syllabi as well. This resource page is an on-going project, and we will update it with more syllabi and up-to-date versions of existing ones.

We invite you to share your syllabi with your colleagues. If you would like to contribute to this page, please contact us at mediadiversityforum@gmail.com

***Note: All course syllabi remain the intellectual property of the instructor and/or institution which they represent. Please contact these individuals before using content from them.***

Please click on the titles to access the PDF files of 42 syllabi. Updated on June 11, 2014.
