What is journalism? Most people understand that journalism has something to do with news, investigation, and opinion as presented through the mediums of newspapers, magazines, and television.
The modern conception of journalism has begun to shift, especially as websites, web blogs and podcasts have become more common. In this course, you will learn about the practice of journalism and how it’s shifted over the years. You will also practice journalism, writing articles in a variety of styles and publishing them online.
You may find yourself with several days to accomplish any number of things before the deadline: conducting an interview outside of class, editing a draft of an article you’ve written, submitting a draft for online publication, researching your next story, and so forth. Students are expected to make use of the class time for journalism projects only.
