ABOUT THE COURSE
The means of delivering news is evolving but the skills required to publish news remain the same. More than ever, newspaper professionals must consistently demonstrate the qualities of precision, accuracy, speed, fairness, understanding and public responsibility. Here at IIJNM, the print stream focuses on good, solid, hard news reporting for newsprint and magazine.
Students of Print Journalism gain these skills through a blend of theoretical and practical courses and workshops. The changing media industry expects all journalists to be proficient with the skills involved in all mediums of news production. What you produce goes online at the end of every production day on The Weekly Observer.
The curriculum listed below offers, in addition to core courses, an array of elective courses from which you may choose to custom-design a program consistent with your areas of interest. No other journalism college has comparable offerings of professional courses to prepare you adequately for an excellent career start. The stream you choose and the courses you select will give you a competitive edge over others in your job.
Whether it is newspaper or magazine journalism, students learn reporting, editing, page design and newsroom management.
