JOURN-401 Advanced Journalism Practices

Advanced Journalism Practices is an opportunity for juniors and seniors to work on a sustained semester-long project. Students create a website with original interviews, photography, and video work that emulate the form and method of traditional journalism. Each project will include photography, graphics, text, and possibly video and audio. The projects explore local issues and will enable students to do original work-researching, interviewing, reporting, editing, designing and illustrating-for publication. The readings, journals, blogs and reporting for the workshop are accomplished in a collaborative fashion with class members critiquing each others work and examining publications and websites that pertain to the course's focus. Prerequisites: JOURN-200, JOURN-201, and Instructor permission.
