Join journalist and professor Gregg Birnbaum for a weekly discussion examining each week’s key news developments, both at home and abroad. From politics, health care and criminal justice/policing, to the economy, societal and global changes, foreign affairs and more, this discussion-driven course will be enriched by class members who come to share their views and listen to fellow discussion members. Each week we’ll delve into topics of greatest interest, with major media outlets as our source (plus occasional readings). We’ll leave each week better informed, with a better understanding of major news events, guided by the Gregg’s insights and the class’ viewpoints.
