GS314 – Independent Study in Journalism

This course has two components: a practicum in journalism and an integrated project designed to accompany the student's course work in the minor. The student's work in the practicum will be evaluated by the on-site supervisor; the supervisor's reports will be reviewed by the minor advisor. The project should be designed by the student in consultation with the minor advisor and course instructor(s). The project should involve a critical component: it should enable the student to explore and critically reflect upon the construction of newsworthy material, the formal and generic constraints of journalistic writing, and the shaping ideologies, both subjective and institutional, of specific instances of journalism. (Only open to students who are pursuing the Thematic Minor in Journalism.)

Prerequisite: consent of instructor & Must be pursuing Thematic Minor in Journalism & General Studies 216 & either English 280 'Journalism as Literature' or General Studies 223.
