Take my college journalism course online

This summer, you can take my Introduction to Journalism course online.

My 10-week interactive online course is designed to teach students with little or no practical experience in journalism the process of reporting and writing the news. The 3-credit course is offered through Marist College, where I'm a full-time professor. Because the course is taught online, no traveling is required and you can take lessons when it's convenient for you.

The course will introduce students to the way reporters do their jobs – how they think, act and produce newsworthy stories. New media will also be covered. Students will learn by reading, studying, questioning, discussing and practicing the craft of journalism. They will learn how to report, interview, write and revise news stories – and become a more discerning consumer of news.

Lessons feature video lectures, interactive exercises and class discussions – all from the convenience of the student’s computer. Students will be assigned to cover real news stories and will receive detailed feedback. I'll also work with students to help them get their stories published. In the past year, my students have been published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bergen Record, Asbury Park Press, Bucks County Courier Times, Poughkeepsie Journal and other newspapers.
