This course continues the study of journalism began in COMM2450. During the first part of the course, students will study historically important interviews for the purpose of determining best practices. They will analyze contemporary newsworthy issues to determine informative lines of questioning; they will consider techniques for persuading someone to become an interview subject; and they will explore ways to pursue a line of questioning without alienating the subject of the interview. The second part of the course will introduce students to the writing of editorials and features. Students will first produce researched and reasoned opinions concerning contemporary issues, and examples of feature or entertainment writing for newspapers. Credit(s): 3 (3 plus 0)
