JOUR 3121: Intermediate News Reporting

3 Credits

This course is a skills-based course designed to teach journalism students how to report and write the types of stories that are central to the basic beats in most newsrooms. The course expands upon the competencies learned in JOUR 3101, but requires more in-depth records searches, interviewing, and writing. Students also learn the basics of such subjects as libel law, public records law, and media ethics. Students will learn in this course how to find news that matters to people, and how to write it so that readers understand it. Whether a student is planning a career in newspapers, television, or other media, they will learn enough to get started as a reporter and to understand how things work (or don't work) in a real newsroom. prereq: [JOUR 3004 or 3004H], JOUR 3101, Jour major
