I'm very excited about this upcoming semester because this class is as progressive as the time we live in. The current curriculum is designed to give students a competitive edge in today's market. Photojournalism students must be media social savvy, as well as educated in the traditional staples of the profession - shooting news, feature and sporting assignments.
With that in mind, students will:
- create and maintain a photo blog;
- learn the legal, ethical and responsibilities of traditional and social media;
- use current editing and multimedia software, like Photo Mechanic, PhotoShop CS5, Audacity and Soundslides;
- shoot traditional photojournalism assignments; and
- write AP style captions.
