Taking Professor Zerwick’s Intro to Journalism class was one of the most instrumental steps in advancing my journalism career. In addition to learning the foundational mechanics of writing, our class was immersed in field reporting both on campus and in the community. We were introduced to professional journalists and exposed to technology-focused reporting tools that are changing the landscape of news. The confidence I gained from this program helped me secure internships with NBC News and provided me with skills I use everyday.
