You’ll take Introduction to Journalism, which is part of the foundational course requirements for the Multimedia Journalism major. This intro course is not, however, your traditional survey class. In your first few weeks, you’ll venture out into the city, finding and developing stories with close guidance from your professors. There are even opportunities to have your stories published so you can start building a body of work. This practical application will help you hone your reporting skills and support your study of theory, practice and historical perspectives.
Next, you’ll take foundational courses in Radio or Television, depending on which emphasis you select.
