Course Description

This 3 credit class will challenge students to develop skills essential to effective sports reporting and writing in the 21st century. Because of the converged nature of news and entertainment media, the course will emphasize critical examination of stories delivered across platforms (i.e. magazines, web-based sports publications, television and radio broadcast and social media such as Facebook and Twitter). Students will also produce original material for web publication, television and radio, as well as for traditional print media. The course will strongly emphasize writing and research skills as well as interviewing and press conference management.

Prerequisites: JRNL2015 and JRNL2035 or Department Head permission.
