This course prepares students to work in a media market where photos and video almost always accompany reported pieces. The Internet has smashed the barriers between television, radio and print journalism and students in this class will study and discuss these changes and work to produce their own projects. Students will increase their analytical skills and learn to combine original reporting and writing with photos, graphics, text and tweets. This class will help students develop the versatility necessary to succeed in a quickly evolving and growing media market. Students will develop as media producers and consumers and learn to better exercise their civic responsibilities as journalists and as citizens. The class requires a smart phone. The instructor will assist any students who do not have one to get one as needed for the class.
