PHO 361 Photojournalism
This course provides an opportunity for the advanced photography major who is interested in pursuing a career in visual communication to deal with the skills, theory, ethics and contemporary issues of newspaper and magazine photojournalism. Students work collaboratively and individually on a semesterlong newsworthy assignment that reflects a topic relevant to current issues in the community. Students produce a complete portfolio based on the chosen topic and present the work to the community in a final exhibition. Through the investigation and visual exploration of a story pertinent to the local or regional community, students are made more aware of the link between photojournalism, the media and culture.
