The course also helps to build the skills in news analysis and the agenda setting in modern media environment.

Alexey Nikolov, Creative Head of the Programme

“With the flood of information that was brought on us by the Web 2.0 the task of telling real news from "fake news" is becoming increasingly challenging by the day. Moreover, in this world of "post truth" those very people who present themselves as the champions of true journalism are often the same ones who generate "fake news", which makes the entire situation even more complicated.

What we hope to achieve with this course is not just giving you a set of ready-made tools to bring your news production skills to date, but also teaching you critical and independent thinking which will help you find your way in the ocean of information which comes from all over the place.”

Oleg Dmitriev, Academic Head of the Program

“I am more than happy to be the part of the course that operates according to “learning by doing” principle. With the help of professors and international media gurus .The students will have a unique chance to try their skills at international newsrooms. I am looking forward to this spectacular “news journey” that we will make together”.
