You’ll take the Foundations of Photography course and practice camera work within the first few weeks of the program. You’ll also take Reporting and Writing, and Introduction to Journalism as part of the foundational course requirements for your Multimedia Photojournalism major. These are not, however, your traditional survey classes. In these courses, you’ll venture out into the Columbia community and beyond, finding and developing stories with close guidance from your professors. There are ample opportunities to have your stories published so you can start building your body of work. This practical application will help you hone your reporting skills and support your study of theory, practice and historical perspectives.
