    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course for nearly all journalism students. If you can, take it with Ms. Reaves because she is a multi-award winning journalist with a LOT of experience. (one of her awards includes the Pulitzer. Oh yeah.) You learn all the ins and outs of writing across all platforms that include print, broadcast, PR, etc.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning the specific journalistic style of writing. You write only to include facts, and make information of whatever the story is clear and accessible to the public. You also learn the inner-workings of a news room!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate on the assignments given to you. It may seem like you have all the time in the world for that story/ project, but in all actuality it is EXACTLY the right amount of time you need to produce a successful product.

    This class teaches your the basics about media writing. Professor Cattanach is a great instructor and is very enthusiastic about her lectures. She also gives great tips and advice about the field to prepare you fort he real world of media writing.

    3-5 hours

    Attend class and pay attention! This class has made me pay much more attention to the media and newspapers. It is definitely an interesting class.
