Multimedia Producing (Interdisciplinary)

Multimedia 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.

The focus of this interest area is planning and producing content across media platforms. A student in this area will have the knowledge and skills to work in traditional newsrooms, Web-only newsrooms, non-traditional news organizations and other growing media areas. A student choosing this path is one who is less interested in a traditional reporting track and is more interested in working with content created by others. Administered by the convergence journalism faculty.
