This two-semester class is for students who want to do a multimedia master’s project and specialize in digital media or multimedia reporting after graduation. In this class students will: 1. Participate in critical discussions of best practices in multimedia storytelling and digital publishing so students are prepared to work in and take on leadership roles at digital news organizations. 2. Get detailed critiques of their master’s project work from instructors, other students, and outside experts during regularly scheduled progress reports. Students will also get regular one-on-one sessions about their master’s projects with their advisers in the class. 3. Gain some specialized skills relating specifically to the reporting and production of their master’s projects. The topical discussions and presentations will be either group discussions of subjects presented by instructors or guest lectures by people working in digital media.
