Learn what it means to be a journalist in the digital age as we explore how to be a reporter in different mediums. You will get hands-on experience as a modern reporter by practicing the marketable skills needed in today’s convergent newsrooms. This will be accomplished as you
- 1) report and write for print, online, and broadcast;
- 2) work in teams to produce video news reports;
- 3) develop a social media strategy.
We will function as a multimedia newsroom, and in the end, your work will be part of a website we develop throughout the week. You will also discover how the calling of journalism fits into a Christian worldview, and we will develop a code of ethics for the Christian journalist.
