Over an intensive three-week period you will be writing, reporting and producing for a variety of media platforms – print, online, radio and television. In “Boot Camp” and in the M.A. program, we will stress the importance of convergence training along with the fundamentals of critical thinking, news judgment, interviewing, ethics and fact checking – all against a backdrop of a changing media, whether you are working for a traditional brand or a newcomer to the industry. Yes, many traditional distribution methods have changed. But don’t worry. It is still journalism after all.
