Online summer college course in journalism

This summer, you can earn 3 college credits studying journalism and newswriting -- all while tanning on the beach or lounging in your living room.

I'm teaching an online course on "Writing for Newspapers" (a.k.a. Newswriting) through Adelphi University, where I'm a professor. The 3-credit class features video lectures, interactive exercises and class discussions, all of which can be done through your computer. You never need to set foot in an actual classroom.

In the 8-week course, students learn how to report, interview, write and revise news stories. Students will be assigned to cover real news stories and will receive detailed feedback. In the past, students have had articles published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune,Newsday, Charleston (S.C.) Post & Courier and other newspapers.
