Topics in Journalism: Writing Op-Ed Pieces and Political Essays

Spring 2016
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CSPL 250H
Certificates: Writing

Practice in writing op-eds and political essays in short and long forms. This class may be of interest not only to writers, but also to students studying political science, history, economics, ethics, sociology, or an interdisciplinary field, such as American studies. The main goal of this class is teaching students how to engage in debate in the public sphere over the major themes and issues of our time. Other than an intense reading schedule and a writing workshop, the other major component will be guest speakers. They include journalist, essayists, and scholars working in their fields but with an authoritative presence in the public sphere.
