What you'll learn

Is it OK to manipulate images or publish photos of dead bodies? Similar to our  Media Ethics class, but with an emphasis on images, this class covers the power of photographs and the responsibilities of a photojournalist. Real-life case studies help students tackle the decision-making process in deciding what’s the right thing to do. Ethical dilemmas include digital manipulation, privacy and minimizing harm.
