Sports Writing and Reporting (3) This course gives students the opportunity to become full-fledged sportswriters. The course is divided into three parts, the preseason, regular season, and post-season, and students work individually and in groups to produce game stories, features, columns, and blogs, culminating in each student writing and reporting an enterprise story. Much of the work centers on American University athletic teams, but students also get the chance to cover off-campus sports events. Usually Offered: fall. Restriction: minimum 2.5 GPA.
