Journalists are master storytellers. You see their work on Web sites, in newspapers and magazines and on television. Their writing is built on professional standards such as accuracy, fairness and clarity, all of which are introduced in this course.
You’ll learn about news values and how to transform basic facts into engaging stories for print, broadcast and online. You’ll also create a blog and interact with a journalist from The New York Times, who will be a guest presenter. But, you don’t have to be a reporter to benefit from this course.
Journalistic storytelling skills are useful to anyone who uses fact-based communication.
This course, which can be taken for credit or non-credit, is part of the Ball State University Emerging Media Journalism Certificate, but can be taken as a stand-alone class. You will have access to the course on Epsilen until 7/31/12.
