News Practicum

A class that is cross-listed in communication and professional writing, the news practicum prepares students for the convergence of media, providing practical experience in multi-platform media writing and production including web, audio (podcasts and broadcasts), and print.

The class is offered both fall and spring semesters for one credit; it may be repeated three semesters for a total of three credit hours to earn the experiential (X) general education requirement. The class meets on Mondays at 5 p.m.

Students do not need to be registered in COMM or PWR 131 to be part of BCVoice. Whether as a staff writer or a guest contributor, all majors and years welcome.
