Craft of Journalism II

Advanced Writing and Reporting

Course Details

Advanced Reporting and Writing combines elements of digital-first instruction and a deep dive into NYC-based storytelling.  Stories are enterprise-driven and usually combine the written word with a variety of multimedia and interactive storytelling elements. Close attention is paid to advanced story structure and research methods, effective pitching, self-editing, strategic use of data and higher level social media tools.  Working in a newsroom environment, all students receive rigorous one-on-one edits.

Requirement: Students in both the MA-Journalism and the MA-Engagement Journalism are required to publish at least one piece of work each semester in Craft 1 and Advanced Reporting courses (MAJ) and Reporting for Engagement J and Advanced Reporting for Engagement J (MA-EJ). Students can fulfill this requirement with work from any first or second-semester class.
