Journalism is more than news reporting. Longer form journalistic works such as feature stories offer audiences the opportunity to find context and more in-depth information about what is happening in local, national and global domains. This course is designed to assist students in developing their skills in long-form journalism, using techniques such as inquiry, description analysis.

This course will concentrate on the preparation of larger journalistic packages, namely for news publications and magazines. Students will research and write different kinds of features; learn and apply advanced interviewing, research and writing techniques; and develop skills in packaging their content for appropriate publication platforms.
