Mis/Disinformation in the Media Certificate

The East-West Center is pleased to offer its first professional certificate in Mis/disinformation in the Media. Building on the reputation, network, and rich offerings of the EWC Media Program, we will offer alumni and those new to the Center an opportunity to engage top journalists in this field, hear from leaders grappling with misinformation in their work, learn tools for improving their own media intake, and share the impact with their community.

The certificate is offered virtually with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous sessions, culminating in presentations and a final social media posting by participants. Speakers and facilitators are drawn from the EWC’s impressive network. The certificate is offered jointly by the EWC Leadership Program, Office of Alumni Engagement, and Media Program.
