Explore the practice, art, and ethics of audio journalism as you work with peers to produce a radio program featuring issues of local and regional concern. You will learn how to produce responsible news stories using carefully collected information and interviews. You'll learn to write for the ear rather than the eye. You'll learn at-home recording and editing techniques. And, you'll gain skill in vocal reading, reporting, and narrating. No previous media experience is required. Students entering with advanced journalism or audio training will expand their skills through work on complex stories or productions.
Our class sessions will be conducted remotely using Canvas and Zoom. We will use Audacity (free, open source audio software) for production work. T he faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
