Lebanese University Newsroom Team


Our team is unique in being the first to involve students from both East and West campuses of Lebanese University’s Faculty of Information. We are skilled in reporting, investigative journalism, social media management, photography, video, writing and editing. We also regularly receive training from journalism professionals and experts to support our learning through building a network of media and community partners. In some cases this has led to more specific and ongoing partnerships with journalism professionals and organisations, namely Raseef22 and Maharat.

Email us at info@arabcitizenmedia.org if you’d like to join our team, or hear more about our ongoing training opportunities.
