JRNL 5001: Media Technology Boot Camp (Augmester)
Students come to Boulder in early August for this residency Media Boot Camp. If you cannot attend the entire three-week course in Boulder, then just attend the first week in residence and complete the rest of the coursework online.
This course offers a foundation in the technologies of journalistic storytelling across a variety of established and emerging media platforms, such as print, television, radio, online publications, blogs, social media and new forms of communication. You will finish the course with basic competence in the technical tools you will need as a journalist.
Core classes are offered in two formats: full-session (15-week) synchronous classes and accelerated (5-week) asynchronous courses. Students take synchronous classes by using distance technologies (e.g., Zoom, Skype) to call into the same class attended by campus-based students. Students complete the coursework for their accelerated, asynchronous classes on their own time throughout the week.
Full Session Classes (15-week, Synchronous)
Accelerated Classes (5-week, Asynchronous)
You have the option to choose one of two specialized tracks for your coursework: Journalism Entrepreneurship or Sports Journalism. Two of your core courses will focus on the specialized track you choose.
