JOURN-401   Senior Project3 credits

Prerequisites: JOURN-300 and JOURN-301

The Senior Project is the culmination of the minor. Students create collaborative projects that emulate the form and method of traditional journalistic work. Each project will include photography, graphics, text, and possibly video and audio. The projects are intended to explore local issues and will enable students to do original work - researching, interviewing, reporting, editing, designing and illustrating - for publication. In this way the seniors in the minor will experience the dynamic of working with a small group on deadline and have the opportunity to create a full-length publication. Some of the types of products that are proposed are online magazines with short and long features, photo galleries, video and audio interviews, multi-sectioned feature stories, and mini-documentaries in sound and/or video. Students will blog/vlog (video blog) their projects throughout the term. The class time will be devoted to workshopping the projects and discussing the course texts.
