Learn How To be A Multimedia Journalist at NYFA

Students learn in the classroom and on-location, building skills in contemporary journalism, digital production, and cross-platform nonfiction video through a range of interesting projects.
Program DescriptionProgram Name: 12-Week Evening Broadcast Journalism Workshop
The 12-Week Evening Broadcast Journalism Workshop teaches students the essentials of broadcast journalism. Throughout the program, students work as MMJs (multimedia journalists) in a fast-paced, creative environment, creating their own news projects using single-camera set-ups and industry standard software. Over the course of the program, students complete a range of digital news segments and reports, gradually building a competitive reel of their best work and establishing an on-air persona.
As students master fundamental narrative storytelling concepts, they also develop valuable skills in communication, research, presentation, social media, personal branding, and writing. Students graduate from the workshop with the ability to effectively pitch and produce news segments and video content, grow their audience, and successfully tell memorable stories across a variety of mediums.
The part-time course meets three evenings a week from 7 to 9:30 p.m. EST. Students’ independent projects are shot on the weekends. In addition, some classes may be held on Saturdays.
