Writing 12: Journalism

This course opens with a fun look at fake news, who writes it and why. From there, the act of writing will be explored as a platform to explore what journalism is becoming. The course is designed with a great deal of flexibility, from multiple options for each assignment, to a final project which will allow you to explore the journalism of your choice, be that television, radio, Twitter, blogging, or another exciting, emerging platform. Multiple perspectives will also be considered. For example, how is it that journalism can be described as both a government institution and a revolution of the people? One thing is for sure, journalism isn’t dead, rather it’s evolving into something entirely different from what it was in the past.
