CO2066 Journalism in the Digital Age I and II
This course provides students with a direct engagement with journalism as it is practiced in the current age and from the perspective of its origins, development, and purposes. The course will combine theoretical knowledge and skills development in the service of an ongoing news organization. It will create a newsroom for a digital newsletter at a minimum of five times during the semester with the intent to disseminate news relevant to the Landmark College community. The newsletter will primarily present written content, but may incorporate mixed media elements as suitable for the "digital age." Every student will produce writing each week and work both individually and collegially toward completing an established number of publishable written articles. This course will also include visiting speakers who practice in the field. Prerequisites: CO1011 or CO1021 or CO1061 or CO1071 or CO Core Trans and EN1011 and FY1011 or FY1001.
This course examines frequency distributions, measures of central tendency and dispersion, and the normal distribution curve. Students explore confidence intervals and sample size. The structure of hypothesis testing is introduced and applied to a variety of situations. Studies in correlation of data and sampling techniques are introduced. Prerequisites: MA0392 with grade of C- or higher required or Level 4 placement. Not open to students with credit in MA2621.
