JOUR 350 - Media Techniques
This course is for students who are participating in an internship at a local media outlet (print, broadcast or online). An alternative to the traditional one-on-one tutorial, this workshop-style course will give students an opportunity to share their experiences with other students engaged in similar journalistic pursuits. Written assignments will include a semester-long journal and ongoing occasional short pieces and a final media project that students pitch to a professional media outlet. Classrooms assignments and discussions focus on ethics, innovation and the new business model. 

Regarding permission and verification of credit: 
Students doing their internship in the spring, concurrent with the class, must get permission from the journalism director before winter break. 
The journalism director will not provide letters to the media outlets verifying credit until the student is officially registered for the course: NO EXCEPTIONS.
