CO 30400 - Advanced Print Journalism

(4)
This course will offer students the opportunity to gain advanced real-life journalism experience by working on Alaska Pacific University’s student newspaper, “The APU Journal”. This course is responsible for publishing the Journal and all students in this course will work on the school newspaper throughout the term. Through hands-on experience the students, who will be referred to as “reporters”, will learn advanced facets of newspaper reporting and writing, including interviewing, feature and hard news writing, editing and the editing process, revision, editorial decision-making, newspaper layout and design, headline writing, and finally, the economics of publishing a small press newspaper. This class may also incorporate opportunities for students to spend time at professional news organizations (such as the Associated Press offices in Anchorage). Guest lectures, readings, handouts and other materials will also be used in this course. Prerequisites: LL 10100  or CO 20400 . Offered Fall/Spring.
