Social Media has changed the way we find, create, and share the news. Crowdsourced journalism has given voice to the voiceless, toppled dictatorships, saved lives, and fueled worldwide movements against gender and racial bias. How are these changes affecting journalism and what are the skills that digital journalists need today? This course explores journalism for various social media platforms, and examines how to build audience engagement through strategic communication. Students will learn basic reporting and writing styles and techniques for producing content that drives engagement, how to verify and manage information from diverse sources, how to complete assignments on current events to target specific audiences, and how to attract journalists to your story and your work.
