Audio Journalism: Building Stories and Soundscapes

Rund Abdelfatah

Back to "Spring 2024" courses

Students will learn ways to tell stories in sound-rich, innovative ways while maintaining journalistic integrity. To do that, we’ll read, hear and watch great stories. A movie, a song, a news story – different mediums can offer lessons for more powerful audio storytelling. They’ll learn from some of the best journalists in the industry and think critically about where the line should be between entertaining and informative reporting. Students should expect to work on several projects throughout the semester that hone various skills necessary to build soundscapes from writing to story mapping to audio gathering and editing podcasts.
