Media, journalism courses @ UVM

November 14, 2008

Students involved in one of UVM’s media organizations or interested in journalism have two courses that might be of interest. Enrollment in these courses is limited, and they fill up fast. If you’re interested, email the professor at

  • College Media Practicum (CDAE 195): Earn credit for work with The Vermont Cynic, WRUV-FM or UVMtv
    • This course gives staff members a chance to earn credit for course assignments related to their work with three UVM student media groups: The Vermont Cynic newspaper, WRUV-FM radio and UVMtv campus television. Students design their own course of study in conjunction with the media adviser, making this course more like an internship or independent study than a standard college course. Students complete 10 weekly assignments, a small midterm project and a longer end-of-term project—all of which can be completed in conjunction with one of the three media groups.

  • News Writing Across the Media (CDAE 121): Learn to report, write and publish in multimedia
    • This course gives you the chance to learn the standards of good journalism and do practical reporting and writing for newspaper, Web, radio and television. This is more of a textbook course, but students do tons (and tons) of practical work. The best students get published and/or produced.
