NNS 101 Introduction to News Studies

Students are introduced to core values of journalism, the community of practice in which journalists operate, the essence of a basic news story, and the fundamental tools that reporters, editors and producers use. The course also examines the context of journalism practice: the role of journalism in society, changing technologies that affect journalism and changing public perceptions of the news media. In addition to learning about these things in theory, students will complete a small number of basic news writing assignments. Lect: 2 hrs./Lab: 1 hr.
