Now I Know

The American Journalism Review’s article explained to me why the University of Missouri makes every journalism student take J2150. These students’ future employers are looking for the skills we are beginning to develop throughout this class — “video, broadcast, audio and social media across desktop, print, TV and mobile products.” Although letter-grades are important to me, this article reinforces that school is more than just that. It is important to strive to actually take in the new information being presented, not just memorize it for a good grade. In order to obtain the occupations each journalism student desires, it is crucial to work hard in this J2150 class not only to get a good grade, but also to thrive in the future.
