Description

Butler University sponsored club offers students a place to learn more apart from their academics. It allows students to experience a variety of journalism types and to gain real experience that not only looks good on a resume but can build confidence for any journalistic career. There are two classes of journalism that the club can aid our students in learning: print journalism and photojournalism. Within these classes, there are specific areas of specialty that can be incorporated into a journalism club: investigative, news, reviews, columns, and feature. Students involved in print journalism can use a newspaper to gain real-world experience. They can write about school events or even local events. Students can conduct interviews with teachers, administrators, and fellow students (as well as people in the community). They can learn how to do proper research into facts, verifying facts, and looking for resolutions to contradictory facts. A photojournalist is often paired with a print journalist. However, a photojournalist is often responsible for telling the story in pictures. Pictures are indeed worth a thousand words, and the right photo goes a long way in generating specific emotions in viewers.
