This is an intensive capstone course that explores the advanced reporting, writing, organizational, analytical, and critical reasoning skills that are the foundation of in-depth journalism. Students, divided in pairs or groups, delve into an in-depth project about an issue that affects Latino communities in the U.S. Throughout the semester, students work their projects in phases, applying the discussions and assignments the class offers on working with sources, the use of data, how to improve the draft and other aspects of in-depth reporting. As part of this class, students submit a detailed memo of progress. The goal: by the end of the semester students will produce a long form piece that uses at least two media formats (including photography, video, audio, and data visualization/interactive, among others) to accompany the article.
Only students fluent in Spanish are allowed to register for this course.
