JOUR 2225 Journalism and New Media (Fall: 3 )
The rise of the internet as a news delivery system has changed the face of the news business, for better or worse, in the 21st century. This one semester seminar will trace the history of new media’s relationship with journalism while preparing students for the leaner online world. Students will learn about practical matters (storytelling for the web, condensing complex narratives into 140-character missives) while grappling with larger concerns affecting the industry and readers (traffic-based journalism, slippery sourcing) as they report and write on the world around them.
