The neo-colonialism of journalism education: teaching journalism

Megan Knight

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Visit any university in China and the Middle East and you will find staff and programmes bought in from universities across the developed (especially Anglo-Saxon) world. For the rapidly expanding education sectors of the Bric countries and their fellows, by far the easiest thing to do is to bring in ready-made programmes and qualifications from the increasingly cash-starved universities of the first world. The added cachet this gives of a foreign (and still, despite everything, often perceived as 'better') qualification just brings more students to the doors, and more money for both the university and the parent institution back home in Perth, or Manchester.
