Photo & Video Journalism

Journalism isn’t just about news – it’s about giving voice to the events, people, and ideas that shape our lives. This course will give you the skills to find stories (about people, communities, sports, food, art, or music), to tell them, and to reach an audience. It’s your moment, it’s your world, so help shape it.

New media and the increasing use of mobile tools have allowed reporters to more fully and richly engage with sources and audiences around the world. These tools also empower young creators to share powerful stories that reflect their own lives and, even bring about social change. This will be a foundational class for the student interested in being a content creator for the digital age.

Digital tools and the plethora of media platforms have transformed journalism, allowing traditional media outlets to reach audiences in rich, engaging ways while also enabling ‘citizen journalists’ to tell their stories and connect with people around the world. Digital tools allow creators of any age to share the stories shaping their lives and even bring about social change. Social media platforms make it possible to connect with people from almost anywhere at any time. This course will explore the use of mobile-based digital photography and video as a powerful medium to share ideas, inspire change, and give voice to new ideas and perspectives.
