This past fall, Geoffrey Cowan taught “The Power and Responsibility of the Press” (JOUR200w) after the class’s popularity in the fall of 2017. It was the first ever General Education course offered by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, and covered topics such as the Iraq War, the Pentagon Papers, whistle-blowing, journalistic ethics, and modern day politics. The class had close to 200 students and featured renowned guests such as Alan Dershowitz, Congressman David Dreier, and former Editor in Chief of Glamour Cindi Leive. He will also be teaching the class next spring.
