Course Description

Formerly JOUR 2278

In this intensive, hands-on capstone course, closely simulating an industry newsroom, students apply their skills in the role of editor to produce compelling multimedia content for publication in the student-run print and online newspaper, The Voice. They conceive, assign, and copyedit stories and photographs as well as produce videos, podcasts, and data visualizations. Rounding out their experience, students also explore the perspective of communications professionals while managing news stories. The Journalism program's advanced capstone course builds on skills developed in JOUR 1179, in which students are introduced to the duties of reporters.

Students will receive credit for only one of JOUR 2278 or 2279.

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 1179, 1240, 1288, 2178, and 2398 (all may be taken concurrently).
