About this course:

This course builds on the skills, discussion, and analysis from Reporting and Writing I to take a more hands-on approach to various styles of journalism. Students learn about cultivating sources, conducting tough interviews, how to organize an investigative story, and other skills that are crucial to on-the-ground journalists. Assignments and discussions are more in depth, and students work during the quarter toward a final project feature story that tests what they’ve learned. Students also build a more complex toolbox of writing techniques and begin to shape their voices as writers and media creators. The goal is that at the conclusion of this course, students learn firsthand what it means to work in media and hopefully want to continue the journey.
