New course for Spring 2012: Advanced Media Interactive (Capstone)

November 14, 2011

UVM will be offering a brand new course in Spring 2012—Advanced Media Interactive—in which students take on the role of investigative reporters to produce in-depth stories for multimedia news organizations, producing in newspaper, TV and online formats. 

This will be a fast-paced, real-world style course  that focuses on:

  • Investigative reporting skills
  • Advanced news writing skills
  • Video camerawork and editing
  • On-camera presence for TV news

For students in CDAE’s Public Communication program, this course can serve as a CAPSTONE course, intended to capitalize on skills learned in other courses in the PCOM major.

For information and overrides, contact instructor Chris Evans at Chris.Evans@uvm.edu.

AND THEN:

Students who excel in this course will have the chance to compete for a six-week intensive TV reporting/anchoring internship at Lyndon State College in Summer 2012. Students who take this summer course will receive six UVM credits at a cost of roughly $6,000.

This competitive summer workshop will teach aspiring broadcast journalists every aspect of TV news, from reporting to production to anchoring, and produce a demo tape professional enough to apply for TV news jobs and internships across the country. Students in this workshop will become part of an award-winning, daily newscast, produced entirely by students.

This summer intensive workshop will be offered for the first time in Summer 2012. For details, contact Chris Evans at chris.evans@uvm.edu.
