Course Aims

The best journalism engages as it informs. When articles succeed at this, they are often cast as feature articles. This course, the COM4204, aims to expand the skills acquired by students in News Writing and Reporting. It will teach students how to write compelling features that look to the essence of news and illuminate it, by ways like embedding or interweaving facts with scenes and small stories that show rather than simply tell the information that is conveyed. Students are expected to gain knowledge of the structure and craftsmanship that make feature articles, such as profiles, seasonal, and critical features, a pleasure to read.
