Fall 2019, JOUR 295A-01: Topics in Journalism and Mass Communications: Studio Production (3). From Ariana Grande's "Musical Genre Challenge" with Jimmy Fallon to political satire on Saturday Night Live, much of our favorite content today flows out of the TV studio and onto our digital devices. Learning to produce programming in the studio and distribute it across platforms and formats can be a valuable skill set. This course provides students hands-on experience in the Reid Hall television studio as they produce content for brands, academics, nonprofits, and peer audiences. Artwick.
Fall 2019, JOUR 295B-01: Topics in Journalism and Mass Communications: Money Talks: Financial Tools for Communications (3). Prerequisite: JOUR 201 or instructor consent. Communications professionals must understand how money influences all aspects of messages. This course introduces students to how Wall Street finances public and private ventures, fuels global markets, strengthens economies, influences Congress, and trickles down to Main Street. Such understanding provides students with another set of tools that add context and quantifiable proof to support product pitches, public relations campaigns and news stories. Swasy.
