Being multiskilled to work as a multiplatform journalist is crucial to getting off to a good start and advancing in today’s journalism. The craft is still about storytelling whether it’s hard news, breaking news, investigative reporting or feature reporting.
Finding internships for students that allows them to hone various skills is important to their development. This was the case this past summer for one of our students. Naomi Harward is a photographer at heart, but is learning how to write stories and shoot video just like the rest of the Cedarville journalism students.
Naomi was part of a intensive two-week program called Storytellers Abroad with the mission agency ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism). She went to Nicaragua and learned more about how to tell a compelling story.
