2014 - Fall: Portfolio

Day & Time: Monday, 10:00am-1:00pm
Location: Library
Course ID: JOUR-GA 1182.001
Instructor: Katie Roiphe

The NYU Portfolio Program is designed to educate journalists in a way that is both conservative and revolutionary: Conservative in that it emphasizes knowledge of various journalistic traditions, basic literary skills, and practical outcomes (aka getting published) and revolutionary in that we are going to pursue these goals without primary emphasis on the “boot-camp” model (“skills” courses, “content” courses, etc.) that has dominated journalism education for the last half century. By invitation, we encourage and enable a select group of students to use their NYU Journalism Department experience to develop a coherent, sophisticated body of work.
