JRNL 253 - Advanced Copy Editing


Semester Hours: 3
Fall
This is an advanced course in copy editing, designed to improve students’ editing skills and news judgment. Course work will focus on print journalism with the understanding that the core values and skills of editing are the same in other media. These range from line editing (emphasizing grammar, punctuation, spelling and AP style) to analysis of news coverage, including story selection, layout and follow-up. Students will study and practice the multiple levels of decision making required of editors, from the mechanics of language usage to the long-term planning of coverage by issue and community.
