Credits

3 cr.

Prerequisite

Sophomore standing.

Course Description

This course provides an introduction to the skills necessary when writing for the media in various forms-non-fiction, speech-writing, broadcast and print journalism, and film documentaries. Students will do research and preparation to enable them to create their own media products, considering how their ideas can be translated creatively into effective sound and moving images, into something functional in the everyday world. They will also learn to transform the purely functional into a product with satisfying aesthetic, educational, and ethical dimensions.
