E-Learning for Members
With the evolution of technologies the job of a Journalist has become as much of a challenge as it is an opportunity. We can now cover a event on a Smartphone and write and publish an article within minutes. And to be able to keep up with the Journalist norms and regulations, we have decided to partner with “Journalism Now”.
For people with non-traditional backgrounds who have been working in other fields, a distance learning program in journalism provides a practical way to gain insight into the basics of journalistic work. The components of such distance learning programs are: news coverage and investigative reports, news and features, satires, critiques, editorials, and specialized subjects such as photojournalism or TV journalism.
EUPA advises all those who are interested in an independent journalism school to verify the quality of education offered there. Distance learning programs in particular are lacking practical training, and depending on the reputation of the journalism school, job candidates who have completed practical training as cub reporters may be preferred in the application process.
Journalism, mass media and communication science may be studied at numerous universities throughout Germany. These majors place more emphasis on the theoretical aspect, although some courses are designed with a more practical focus, e.g. by cooperating with other media institutions. The above-mentioned programs of study have drawn much interest in recent years. When planning your studies, take more hands-on aspects such as stage direction and camera work into consideration.
A well-founded theoretical education, along with plenty of practical experience, is key to long-term success in the world of journalism. Members of EUPA should not have a hard time finding partners of journalism schools or universities in Germany or the USA.
