In this class you will be introduced to the field of journalism and its varied specializations. While you will continue to improve your own writing and close reading, you will also learn how to effectively report, interview, research, edit, and apply concepts of layout design. The reading and writing of journalism’s genres – news, features, editorials, columns, and sports – are emphasized. As you begin to blend theory and practice, you will get the unique opportunity to apply these skills as we create a real-life newspaper read by 3,000 students and faculty.
