Convergence Radio Reporting/Producing
CONVERGENCE RADIO REPORTING/PRODUCING (INTERDISCIPLINARY)
All convergence journalism interest areas teach multimedia storytelling by having students take the three core convergence classes: JOURN 4804 Convergence Reporting, JOURN 4806 Convergence Editing and Producing, and the capstone, JOURN 4992 Reporting, Editing and Marketing of Converged Media.
This interest area is for the student wanting to work largely in audio reporting. This area includes a wide range of reporting classes and producing/management classes, giving the student a sense of radio work both as a reporter and as a behind-the-scenes producer. Several courses offered provide the opportunity for training in media management. Administered by the convergence journalism faculty.
