    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is crucial for any aspiring journalist. In a small, discussion-based class, you learn the ins and outs of reporting and journalistic writing. The professors offer constructive criticism, allowing the stories written in this class to act as writing samples for a portfolio.

    Course highlights:

    The most beneficial thing I learned from this course is learning how to write on deadlines. News happens fast – the timeliness of reporting is beyond important. All of the deadlines were practical, too, so I never felt negative pressure. Additionally, librarians and other Newhouse professors spoke to our class often to teach research skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can't be afraid to interview people. If you are going to enroll in the class, practice talking to strangers. Human sources are an essential part of reporting, and almost every assignment will require a few.
