Section Description

From 'The Front Page' to 'Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail `72'. From 'Scoop' to 'The Newsroom' few professions are as romanticized as journalism. This class looks at both the media?s myths about itself and the realities of life in newsrooms where deadlines loom more and more frequently. Parts of the media universe are shrinking while others are exploding, and getting paid for your work seems harder and harder. How, then, does one get a foot in the door?

Section Expectation

Daily interaction via a discussion board and several short assignments.
