This course is being updated for the Spring 2017 semester. In the past, a different version of this course required students to work a shift in the INC newsroom — that is NOT part of the new course.
The new course is very much focused on journalism and how journalists and their organizations use social media to advance their stories and their own personal brands. Social media is a vital part of the journalism ecosystem, and everyone who desires to become a part of the journalism field needs to understand social media.
For this course, you will be required to use various social media apps on your phone. These include Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
When the Course Schedule for 2017 is complete, a new post will be added here. In the meantime, you can read About This Course.
