Reporting and Writing the News

Reporting and Writing the News
Students in this introductory journalism class will learn how to conceive, report, write, edit, illustrate, and publish a variety of stories, including hard news, features, profiles, reviews, and op-eds. Through weekly assignments, they will practice crafting clear, concise, and colorful prose. They will develop story ideas, conduct interviews, and write balanced and engaging articles on deadline for our class news blog, which will cover the campus and local community. Students will also follow the news daily, and read a wide range of exemplary pieces. We will discuss the key legal and ethical issues facing today’s journalists, as well as the impact of digital and social media on the news business. Professor Catharine Wright will be assisting with the class, giving occasional lectures, and connecting the class to broad liberal arts themes.
