    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    News Reporting awakened my passion for journalism. After the first mock-press conference, I realized I had a passion for informing others and the curiosity to dig for stories. The course was filled with practicing how to write breaking news and trips to the local police station to write real ones. My story on an overnight car break-in made front page of my university's news program, and I could not have done it without the hands-on experience News Reporting gave me.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the format news stories are written in, their correct AP-style grammar, and what to look for in a good story. To engage readers, the most important or novelty news item should go in the lead, then the rest of the event below it. Practicing these leads with funny real-world-inspired stories taught me how to write journalism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are an inspiring journalist, the most important piece of advice in News Reporting is to ask questions. Curiosity is a necessary trait to be successful in this career. If something sounds wrong, ask about it. If you doubt the credibility of a source, dig in to their credentials. There is no harm in making sure your facts are correct and your stories are accurate. You should not aim to be the first story posted; you aspire to be the most truthful.
