Learning Goal: I’m working on a journalism multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.PurposeUse this take-home, open-book final essay (please work alone) as an opportunity to construct the best ethical guidelines from class that you can use as a personal reference in your future career (so it can be specific to journalism, PR, film, etc.). Essentially, this will serve as a summary of the most useful things you’ve learned and discovered about yourself and media ethics, ending in your own professional code of ethics.It should reflect a mixture of textbook or other scholarly references, class lectures, and your own principles and beliefs.You may draw on writings you did throughout the course, but need to address the specific questions asked.When you use ideas from a scholarly source, including materials from the textbook or other class readings, cite the source, in APA format (page #s for direct quotes).You MUST cite all your sources, but you need to include the references at the end ONLY for sources other than class readings (which are not required).

This should be something you believe you could earn/deserve. [one paragraph]PART 2: ETHICAL THEORY AND YOUR MORAL BELIEFSArticulate your basic definitions of principles of right and wrong in general (not media-specific). To apply broadly, the principles must be abstract yet written with enough detail to apply to the way you live or want to live. You may want to specify the meaning of a key term or incorporate exceptions to the rule. Be concise: Keep each principle to one or two sentences.Something is right if it ____________________________________________________.Something is wrong if it ___________________________________________________.Are you more of a moral relativist or a moral absolutist/objectivist? (in general, not related to media issues).Explain how you know this and what the lines or boundaries are for you as far as where your relativism ends.In answering this, don’t just give a specific example of an act you disagree with, but, rather, phrase your disagreement in abstract terms applicable to multiple situations. [one or two paragraphs]Ethical Theories you plan to follow.List five or six general guiding questions you will ask to make ethical decisions in life (all based on duty-based, utilitarian, virtue ethics, ubuntu, and/or ethics of care).Explain which ethical theory or theories guide each of these questions.Explain how these chosen theoretical perspectives are informed by or relate to your core definitions about right and wrong (from Part II, Question 1). [about one page]PART 3: PROFESSIONAL ETHICS, YOUR DECISION-MAKING & CODESExplain what you think is the biggest macro/social-level ethical concern regarding/facing your chosen media profession. Make sure I know which media profession you chose. For example, macro issues in journalism might include concentration of ownership, the rise of infotainment, diversity in employment, etc. In your answer, explain how this problem/concern is related to ethics in terms of truth, justice, and/or minimization of harm. [one page]List three to five tips related to maximizing Truth via your profession (addressing things like: accuracy, context/completeness, and/or balance; deception; photo alteration; persuasion; withholding information versus disclosure; etc.).

This is a good place to pull ideas from the textbook.List three to five tips to Minimize Harm via your profession (addressing things like: privacy, confidentiality, offensive or anti-social content, etc.). Be specific and include disclaimers/exceptions where appropriate. This is a good place to pull ideas from the textbook.Justice/Fairness: Consider this related to media representation choices you may make as a media creator/producer. Choose three of the following social categories/groups: Race & Ethnicity; Gender; Sexual Orientation; Religion; Disability; Juveniles/Children. For EACH social category/group you choose, write the best two or three guiding questions or tips you would consider to ensure that you are being fair/sensitive/respectful. NOTE: These are questions you would ask YOURSELF about what YOU are doing/choosing. For example, for disability, you could ask “Am I avoiding defining this person primarily based on their disability?”Your Professional Code of Ethics: List however many professional codes (rules/statements from the codes) that stand out to you as the most critical/useful/valuable to make a comprehensive professional code of ethics for you.Make sure to cite which professional organization they are from (and you can use more than one organization’s codes if you wish).Also list additional principles that you want to add to the list of existing professional codes to personalize them or improve them according to your value system – so they are useful and applicable as your professional codes of ethics (this means you are crafting and writing some of your own codes).You should organize or categorize all these codes in a meaningful way.After you’ve created this list of codes, write a substantial paragraph or two (about one page) explaining your choices (i.e., in terms of why you included or excluded certain ideas and how you intentionally framed or phrased them to create certain meanings that fit with your values/principles). [about 2 pages total]CriteriaCONTENT: Evidence of learning and exhibiting a deep or thoughtful understanding of the course material on media ethics, including use of class texts, in your answers to all the questions.THOROUGHNESS: Answering all the questions thoroughly according to what was asked. The suggested length for each question is a clue, but I also will be looking at how thoroughly your answers address each question.WRITING QUALITY: This includes grammar, sentence structure, clarity of expression, no spelling errors or typos, APA format for citations, etc.
