In their first class, students will break into teams and choose a theme that they would like to report on. Over the course of the program, students will complete multiple journalism projects which will ultimately be combined into a portfolio that focuses on their selected theme. Along the way, they will use blog, video, photo, and podcast reporting techniques to capture different angles of their story. Using an experiential learning approach, students will quickly engage in the topic. The instructor introduces the underlying theory and concepts as students tackle these issues while interviewing and reporting.
