2020 Course Offerings below
Report NY+
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday | Time: 10:00 am-12:00 pm | Four college credits.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday | Time: 12:00 pm-2:00 pm | Four college credits.
New this summer, this course is for pre-college students who want exposure to the craft of journalism at a beginner’s level, but with the added benefit of an in-house specialist offering ESL assistance to international students. It's a class in gathering and writing the news, including news evaluation, reporting and writing techniques, and specialized beats, with New York City, especially Downtown New York and its nearby Brooklyn neighbors, as the lab. It's designed to provide extensive practice. It covers how reporters are assigned stories, how stories are planned and written, and journalism ethics and responsibilities. Students report and write stories under newsroom conditions. For students with and without prior journalism studies or experience.
The Personal Essay
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 10:00 am-1:00 pm | Four college credits 
Do you have something to say? A story to tell? An application essay to write? An original voice? This course will nurture that voice, help shape the stories, sharpen your skills. The personal essay is a popular form of nonfiction writing, cherished by both writers and readers, but crafting a successful essay is a difficult skill. How can we be self-revealing without being self-indulgent? How can we make our own experiences powerful for others? In this course, students will read some of the best essays around, from Langston Hughes and Joan Didion to Oliver Sacks to Marjorie Williams and other writers and write their own, taking each one through several drafts. The heart of the course will be close reading and editing of student work. For students' with and without prior journalism studies or experience.
Style NY: Covering the Fashion Industry
Monday, Wednesday | Time: 5:30 pm-8:30 pm | Four college credits
Fashion and style have always been integral to the magazine and newspaper industries. But Despite each publication having its own unique take on the fashion industry, they are all alike in that they express an opinionated view on clothing, designer talent, models, and fashion as it relates to society and culture. Now magazines and periodicals have had to compete with bloggers and other influencers who have proven to be early masters of the fashion journalism game and who attract the attention of millions of followers.
 Whether online or in print, great fashion writing expresses an opinion and makes connections to the past, present, and the future. This class will explore reviewing fashion shows, writing trend pieces, long-form stories, and profiles. It will also delve heavily into the fast-paced world of blogs and social media from Twitter and Instagram to Snapchat and Vine—touching on the differences and similarities of each medium. Finally, we will also practice techniques for real-world situations such as interview skills and navigating the world of PR agencies. There will be guest speakers from different facets of the fashion industry.
EAT NYC: Food Reporting and Writing
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 3:00 pm-6:00 pm | Four college credits
“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” – Brillat-Savarin, French epicurean.
This quote captures the spirit of what you will explore immersed for six weeks in the deliciously creative and highly competitive world of food writing. Using New York City as our classroom, we’ll find fresh ways to discover, pitch and tell the stories of those who grow, make, and serve the foods we savor. We’ll bring them to life in a variety of formats—personal narrative, trend pieces, restaurant reviews—with the goal of pitching your best work to your favorite food publication or website.
Those with a hunger for challenge and adventure will be rewarded. You’ll meet guest speakers from the world of food and food journalism, get comfortable interviewing strangers, analyze the state of food journalism, taste and critique new foods, review a NYC restaurant or neighborhood, and develop, pitch, research, report and write (and rewrite!) stories of varying length, all optimized for digital and social promotion. Because food is a uniquely visual beat with a strong service component, you’ll also get a crash course in recipe writing, video, and food photography.
Introduction to Narrative Podcasting
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 5:00 pm-8:00 pm | Four college credits
Much of the most groundbreaking, relevant, and creative journalism today is happening in podcasting. As popular and influential programs like The Daily, This American Life, and Radiolab show, podcasting isn’t simply your parents’ radio transferred online. It’s an increasingly important, often innovative journalistic art unto itself. In this summer course, students will learn to craft compelling stories solely in sound. By the end of the summer session, they will complete two professional-quality podcasts to round out their news portfolios. They’ll learn essential hard skills like field recording and editing tape with software. Students will also analyze podcast story structure and learn how to pitch audio stories. They’ll report, plan and prep interviews, write their own scripts, mix and master audio, perform sound design and scoring, and be exposed to the business of podcasting. Along the way, students will find their own voices, offering their unique takes on the world strictly through sound.
Music! Film! TV! Writing Popular Culture
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 5:30 pm-8:30 pm | Four college credits
Writing about pop culture is a playground for radical thought, for exciting, often polarizing ideas on race, society, and how the fictional and fact-based entertainment we breathe intersects with real life. From reboots and reality TV to blockbusters and horror movies, from sitcoms and romcoms to the expansive landscape of minority-led Hollywood productions, from the latest Mitski album to Lizzo, there is no shortage of material to write about.
This course will help students sharpen their critical skills and instincts, write within a specific beat, and brainstorm good, pitchable ideas and story angles. Through writing assignments and occasional field reporting, students will brave the (internet) elements and learn to document pop culture, in the form of news blogs, reviews, interviews, criticism, and research. Along they way they’ll start to develop their own voice.
Travel Writing: The World on a Metrocard
Monday, Wednesday | Time: 3:00 pm-6:00 pm | Four college credits
What kind of destination makes a travel writer happy? Sights and sounds and smells different enough to surprise but familiar enough to be relatable. A place nothing like home that soon feels like home. Ah, and in these days of tight budgets it has to be cheap to get to. Like, say, $2.75? In New York City, Russian, Senegalese, Dominican, Korean, Bangladeshi, Polish and Chinese neighborhoods (to name a few), are just a subway ride away. This course will use the five boroughs as a proxy for the world as students produce travel content both traditional – service pieces, personal essays, guidebook entries – and digital – blogs, social media posts and YouTube videos. Taught by Seth Kugel, former Frugal Traveler columnist for the New York Times and host of the Amigo Gringo You Tube channel, the course will also introduce students to travel writers past and present and explore the ethical considerations of writing about places as destinations for (usually) privileged (mostly) Westerners. Travel writing might seem like a dream job, but there’s still the job part of it: the best travel writing is also journalism, with the same ethics and responsibilities to reader and subject. How do you make compelling but honest content that stands out in a travel writing landscape increasingly dominated by user review sites?
Feminism and the Media
Tuesday, Thursday | Time: 4:00 pm-7:00 pm | Four college credits
Feminism and the Media is a collaborative seminar designed to examine the complex relationship (or different, contradictory relationships) between those humans we call “women” and those forms of discourse we call “media.” We will consider women both as subjects and objects, as artists and models, as creators of “media” in its many forms and as media’s creations. What does our culture’s “media” tell us about its ideas of gender? What, if anything, does our gender tell us about our readings of “media”? Student participation in this seminar is key: students are expected to attend all sessions, to complete all the reading (there’s lots of reading!), to participate actively in discussion, and to lead one of the class sessions themselves. Leading a class means opening the day’s conversation with a presentation, critiquing and elaborating on the assigned reading, bringing in additional relevant material, and suggesting questions or issues that seem particularly interesting or troublesome. The purpose of the course is to develop our critical and self-critical faculties as journalists, media critics, consumers of media, and women or men – to think clearly, challenge our pet assumptions, and have fun. Along with attendance and informed class participation, students are required to conduct a mini-research project and present their findings to the class. I want you to pick a “women and media” topic that really interests you and then report the hell out of it. If you’re interested in the effect of music videos on teenage girls, for instance, you would first put together an extensive bibliography of what has already been written on the subject. You would figure out what the key questions in the field were: do media images affect teens’ behavior or not, and how can anyone tell? You might interview some of the leading researchers in the area and tell us what they say. You’ll certainly want to read the most important books/articles on your subject. A paper is not required; instead, students will present their findings to the class during the last few sessions.
