FW1320 - Field Placement (Post Diploma)

Post-Diploma Journalism students are placed for four weeks with a professional news organization, applying and building upon the training they received in their first two semesters. Students pursue learning objectives related to their individual career goals while receiving field work training. In conjunction with a field supervisor (an employee in the placement agency), the instructor supervises and evaluates the student’s progress. Students learn to produce journalism in a professional atmosphere through a combination of hands-on assignments and job shadowing. Post-Diploma students will produce a major piece of public service journalism during the field placement.
