Unique journalism program at Scottsdale Community College teaches reporting and production skills to students of all ages
The fall semester at Scottsdale Community College begins August 20.
Now is the perfect time for students of all ages to enroll in a unique on-the-job training program for journalists.
JRN 210, News and Media Production, teaches all the skills journalists young and old will need to pursue a career in journalism while in school.
New students receive several weeks of intensive training not only in news writing, but also in the audio and video production techniques they will need to ensure success in the industry.
At the end of the training period, everyone becomes a member of a functioning newsroom and is eligible to create content for our student-run, student-written digital news site, nevalleynews.org.
NEVN reporters are encouraged to pursue their passions while working in the medium of their choice. Whether it’s writing, photojournalism, podcasting, or videography, JRN 210 puts you ahead of the pack when it comes to getting a job after graduation.
Once involved, most students stay in the program for several semesters, broadening their skills and practicing the things they have learned while making contacts for the future.
NEVN reporters can also gain an edge, as well as valuable experience, by taking advantage of numerous internship opportunities with some of Arizona’s most popular organizations, such as the Arizona NHL Hockey Team. Republic and Arizona Coyotes.
Whether you’ve just graduated from high school or recently retired from your former career, today’s political and social climate makes it the perfect time to raise awareness about what’s important to you.
