Follow student reflections in their daily vlogs:

Nine ThreeSixty Journalism students are creating their first video news packages during ThreeSixty’s TV Broadcast Camp. Their stories focus health equity, specifically physical activity in underrepresented communities.

Students are being mentored by broadcast journalists from WCCOFOX 9KSTPKARE 11TPTBMA Cable; the University of St. Thomas and the University of Minnesota Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The camp is powered by a partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota Center for Prevention and Padilla.

News Reporter Academy

Check out News Reporter Academy students’ daily reflections!

 

ThreeSixty Journalism’s News Reporter Academy is a two-week course for advanced writers held at the University of St. Thomas College of Arts and Sciences St. Paul campus.

Students began their first week exploring their role in the media landscape. They then had lessons with professionals relating to digital audio and visual storytelling, as well as emerging and engaging media and communications fields. The second week shifted gears as students worked on their first professional assignment, which will be published in the Pioneer Press and Star Tribune.

The theme for News Reporter Academy, in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota Center for Prevention, was health equity. The stories focused on physical activity in underrepresented communities.

Once those assignments were complete, students had a college exploration day, learning about the Journalism and Digital Media Arts program at St. Thomas. They also visited the University of Minnesota’s Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
