Miami University’s journalism department, always seeking ways to provide hands-on experience to majors and those interested in the field, is hosting its inaugural NYC Media class this Winter Term.
According to journalism professor Patti Newberry, the three-week class incorporates one week of touring the offices of New York City news organizations and interviewing their journalists. The other two weeks, students will spend their time meeting online, selecting the news outlets to tour and producing websites and blogs that will depict the goings-on of the class.
The course will run from Jan. 6 to Jan. 24, 2014, with students arriving in New York City on Jan. 12 and leaving Jan. 16.
Students applying for this opportunity will need above a 3.0 GPA, will be serious media students and have completed JRN 201.
All students accepted will pay in-state tuition, the only additional costs totaling roughly $1,000 for flights, accommodations and food.
