Prerequisite: Eligibility for ENG 101

Journalism (COM 121) is an introductory course covering basic skills in writing, reporting and editing news. Course material also includes the ethical issues and commercial pressures that shape the news, and relevant discussion of current events. Because writing is an essential skill for journalists in all media, coursework includes grammar, and written assignments are emphasized. In-class discussion and critique of student writing will also be an important part of the course.
