This syllabus is for an undergrad course that has students creating content and editing a student-run news website for course credit. The course is intended for those who already have learned the basics of journalism.

Because the course is designed to be an upper-level practicum that focuses on honing skills learned in other classes, the syllabus doesn't outline week-by-week writing or reading assignments. Rather, it lists what is expected of staff and explains how basic newsroom skills affect grades.

This is from the spring 2010 semester at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.
