Beat Reporting

Required of all Journalism majors. Students advance their reporting skills by learning to cover a city neighborhood or a community beat. Students branch out across the city and suburbs to cover courts, crime, education, local and state politics, and other essentials of community reporting. Students develop their own sources and story ideas with the goal of professional publication in the Boston University News Service or another news site. The purpose is to hone your reporting skills, develop sources, and build both competence and confidence. Students produce stories, photos, audio and video for the Web. Class is run like a newsroom, and students are encouraged to show enterprise. 4 cr, either sem.
