Class Details

Acquaintance with the fundamentals of journalism is useful in dealing with the daily avalanche of news and information. An understanding of how news is gathered and presented in print improves the health of skepticism, aids communication skills and sharpens the ability to think critically. Assignments in this introductory course will include writing “basic” news stories, features, obituaries, editorials, op-ed pieces and reviews. Students also will explore interviewing techniques, the cultivation and evaluation of sources and other aspects of a newspaper reporter’s job. In addition to current daily newspapers, magazines and on-line news sources, students will read and discuss examples of the journalistic forms under study
