JTC Offers Summer Courses On-Campus and Online
Journalism | March 16, 2013
Journalism and Technical Communication faculty members will be teaching both online and on campus this summer, and that means extra opportunity for students to make up ground, or get a head start on requirements and electives.
Want to get a better understanding of how the curriculum works? Watch this video:
Courses are scheduled during all summer sessions, with four-week, eight-week and 12-week options. Students can build a mixed schedule of on-campus courses and online courses if desired.
This summer’s on-campus JTC schedule includes a new workshop in sports journalism, a practicum opportunity in location-based television production, and a wide variety of internships. Students new to the department can enroll in enough credits to make up a full semester course load if desired, or pick and choose to develop a less ambitious schedule that can be completed on campus, or at a distance.
