JRNL3030 - News Writing II
Fall 2011

News Writing 2 builds on News Writing 1 by challenging students to fine tune their basic newsgathering skills. In News Writing 2, students select a beat, or specialized area of coverage, and write all of their stories on topics relevant to that beat. In this way, they continue to develop your newsgathering and writing skills while cultivating expert-level competence in covering a specific type of news. Journalists need to be able to cover a wide range of issues well, but expert-level competence, such as that developed by beat reporters, is needed to provide substantive coverage of the big issues in many areas. That's what this class is for. Students are encouraged to incorporate their "restricted elective" theme into the beat they select for this course. Upon successful course completion students will be able to: 1) Display expert-level mastery of the subject matter related to your beat 2) Generate consistent news coverage from their own beat Write publishable newspaper articles/features that are beat specific
