Course Description: Introduction to Journalism is designed to acquaint students with news decision making, newsroom operations, reporting, writing, editing and Associated Press style guidelines. The course is laboratory‐based and has substantial reporting, writing and editing assignments.
I design my classes to acquaint students with the basics of journalism as a profession and as a source of information about their community and their world. In addition to regular class lectures and discussions on journalism and current news events, we will set the classroom up to operate as a newsroom for an online publication we will be reporting, writing, editing and publishing this semester (more details will be given in class).
You will want to get familiar with the following Web sites, which we will be using throughout the semester:
