Digital and social media continue to alter the way we live, work and study. Journalism and communications are among the leading fields participating in this exciting communication shift. For journalists, the use of these new media channels affects research, interviews, writing and promotion of news content. For communications professionals, these channels offer fresh considerations in areas such as public relations, advertising, marketing and employee relations. In addition to exploring these areas and issues, the course will also help students apply tools like Twitter, LinkedIn, wikis, and video sharing to journalism, communications and career preparation/networking.
