Reporting and Writing I
0.5 Credit

Students will develop practical skills in the basics of reporting and writing for print news while also reflecting upon how the professional practices and structures of the news media are one of many forms of public communication. They will examine how news media practices both reflect and contribute to broader socio-political forces, thus developing their skills in a context of critical reflection. Writing skills are honed through online lab work. Students will be assigned media writing tutors and will submit weekly lab assignments electronically to them for critique. (Cross-listed as MX101.)
