The Entrepreneurial Journalism course is the testing ground for Journalism majors interested in experiencing what it is like to be freelance journalists.
The class partners with Next Door Media, an online news network of Seattle neighborhood blogs dedicated to reporting local community issues. Each student works in a team to pinpoint a local issue to focus their project around during the quarter. Students spend a significant amount of time reporting from the field. They utilize multimedia tools to aid in their projects. At the end of the class, students submit their work to local award-winning blogs who then determine whether they will publish the work.
The class is taught by Sarah Stuteville, Jessica Partnow, and Alex Stonehill from the Common Language Project.
