What I am teaching this semester

The spring 2022 semester at UNC-Chapel Hill begins on Monday, Jan. 10. Here’s what I am teaching this term:

MEJO 153, Writing and Reporting. In this course, students learn the essentials of writing and information gathering for journalism and public relations. The class meets twice a week and has 18 students. Here is the syllabus.

MEJO 557, News Editing. In this course, students learn about editing for digital media, including headline writing and social media. The class meets twice a week and has 20 students. Here is the syllabus.

Both courses are scheduled to meet in person. However, with approval from the dean’s office of the Hussman School of Journalism and Media, they will meet remotely on Zoom for the first three weeks of the semester because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can browse syllabuses (or syllabi, if you prefer) from across the journalism school at the Park Library website. Best wishes to students, faculty and staff on a successful semester!
