Specialized Content 2

Course Code: JOUR 4003

Academic Year: 2018-2019

This course builds on the skills gained in Specialized Content 1, going in depth to produce long form items focused on one aspect and angle of a specialty to be posted to a website. Students analyze current journalistic websites dedicated to in-depth content and use advanced editorial and production skills to create content that is feature and current affairs oriented rather than driven primarily by daily news. Working in groups, with student editors overseeing content and production, students produce text, video and audio items for websites dedicated to one aspect of a specialty. Students also produce images and value-added elements, such as timelines and online polls. Specialty areas include sports, entertainment and the arts, life and style, business and technology, health and science and religion and spirituality.
