Today’s digital journalists are tasked with employing new storytelling tools.

This advanced multimedia journalism course will push students, working individually or in teams, to produce innovative and compelling work that will engage news consumers on the web.

In this course students will spend their fall semester producing one long-form multimedia project of their choosing. Completed projects will be a carefully assembled amalgamation of text, audio, video, photos, interactive maps and graphics.   

The objective of the course is to have students produce a heavily reported, thoroughly researched and beautifully crafted piece of digital journalism – the equivalent of an academic senior honors thesis.
