Journalism practicum is a guided practical experience on a student publication or another publication. No class meetings are scheduled. The student may meet with the Stylus staff at their weekly meeting time, currently Wednesdays at noon. Students may arrange to receive assignments at other times.
The student will be responsible for completing an assignment for each issue of the Stylus or for a variety of Narva deadlines. Students may also be present for production of either publication. Details will be arranged individually with the instructor.
Because this is an extremely important educational experience accomplished in an independent manner reflecting the world of commercial journalism, both the teacher and the student must be responsible for strong informal exchange of ideas, critique, brainstorming and general help in accomplishing assignments.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
