Course Description

A successful career in media requires the ability to write and share various types of content through multiple platforms on tight deadlines. In this intensive hands-on course, student reporters apply the storytelling skills they have acquired in a simulated newsroom environment to write features, breaking news stories, opinion pieces, and sports and business reports for Langara's student publication, The Voice. They create written, photographic, video, and audio content for the student-run print and digital newspaper.

Students will receive credit for only one of JOUR 1178 or 1179.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Diploma or Certificate in Journalism.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in all of the following: JOUR 1122, 1128, 1142, and 1168 (all may be taken concurrently).
