The Public Health Advocate is a publication that focuses on bringing about public health awareness within the local and national community. This course will focus on guiding students through the writing, editing, and publication process. It will also work to equip students with the knowledge and expertise necessary in order to pursue a career in journalism or research in the future, though no long-term intent to work in journalism or research is necessary to participate in the course.
Through the process of writing, publishing, hearing short talks in class regarding various journalism topics, and attending guest lectures, students will gain deeper insight and guidance regarding the ways in which public health can inform journalism as well as the ways journalism can strengthen the field of public health.
Assignments will include short weekly readings as well as weekly submissions of article drafts throughout the writing process. Students will be required to write three articles over the span of the semester, which will be published on the Public Health Advocate website upon completion.
Writing/editing assignments and readings will be worth 60% of the grade and attendance and participation will be worth 40%. Each student will be expected to attend class every week. Only one unexcused absence will be accepted. Absences will only count as excused if they are emailed in and approved 48 hours in advance of the class period.
