This graduate proseminar introduces students to the fundamentals of journalism at the graduate level—research, interviewing, reporting, and writing—by exposing them to a variety of reporting assignments. Students learn how to construct a lead as well as how to structure a story. They experience the difference between a feature story and a news story by having to write them both.
Prerequisite: a satisfactory score on the mandatory test of critical reading and writing skills. (4 credits)
