American journalism is rapidly changing as technology, economics and culture continue to disrupt the ways in which people produce and consume the news. The fundamentals of journalism, however, have not changed. Students in this class learn to think like a journalist, learn how to generate, research, and develop story ideas, conduct interviews, gain an understanding of how the news cycle works, and acquire the skills journalists use to produce accurate, ethical, clear, impactful and responsible journalism. The class is your gateway drug to becoming a news junkie.
