Beef Up Your Skills During the Break
If you’re a junior or senior, why not use the before spring semester to expand your journalistic skills with a series of January Academy enrichment workshops offered by CUNY’s Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism? They’re available free to select CUNY undergraduates.
Some of the workshops cover fundamental journalistic skills, such as generating a constant flow of story ideas, cultivating sources, harnessing the power of studies, interviewing and copy editing your own work.
There are also a range of topical courses, including reporting on criminal justice reform; comedy, journalism, and the role of fact in satire; travel writing, and turning little stories into big ones.
Economics-related courses cover power, politics and money, “Trump in the World Economy” and the economy, markets and business in the Age of Trump.
Undergrads must register through the CUNY J-School Office of Admissions at 646-758-7700.
