JOUR 2236 Arts Journalism (Spring: 3 )
The aim of this course is threefold: to make students better writers, to introduce them to procedures for writing about culture journalistically, and to expose them in an unsystematic fashion to various artistic works, writers, artists, and performers well worth being exposed to. Topics include reviewing, arts profiles, cultural reportage, and reporting on culture from a business perspective. Requirements: five reviews, 2-4 pages in length (the first two of which are ungraded); one longer paper, 5-8 pages in length; and a pass/fail take-home final. Grading: 70 percent papers, 30 percent class participation.
