|(3 cr.) In this course, students learn and practice
watchdog journalism, helping to inform our
communities and keeping public figures and
institutions in check. Students cover in-depth
news off campus, on topics such as crime, public
health, politics, education and the environment.
In conversations with working journalists,
students learn both innovative and proven
strategies for reporting. Students also work
individually and in teams to publish stories and
multimedia projects based on public data,
documents and interviews.
