Ethics & Leadership in the Media

In the interest of educating thoughtful and responsible leaders, the Ethics & Leadership in the Media BDP brings together resources from across campus to allow students to explore ethical questions related to the relationship between the media and society. Topics may include the ethics of representation, government surveillance, media law, media ownership, and ethical codes of conduct in media professions. Through the Connecting Experiences component of the BDP, you may work with community and professional organizations or bring your interdisciplinary expertise to faculty research.

An interdisciplinary faculty panel guides students in choosing courses and identifying research and internship experiences that allow them to connect the challenges of ethical leadership to their majors and career goals.
