The state of women in the media: Representation, coverage and framing of women in East African media
This research examined the representation of women in East African news media organisations and the coverage and framing of women in top East African newspapers, TV and digital platforms.

" As a newspaper editor, I no longer think of the stories as just for print but for the website too. I can proudly say that thanks to the programme, I can now do a story for both TV and radio. I learnt how to operate a camera, produce a TV feature, manage the production process and how social media can work for someone in the newsroom. I can proudly say I am an all-rounded journalist thanks to the Master of Arts in Digital Journalism programme."
