Journalism Capstone Projects

This fall, seven journalism students completed their Multi-Platform Capstone project. The class is a student’s final project, in which they demonstrate their ability to bring together multimedia journalistic skills and produce a significant journalistic project or product.

Students must show a firm understanding of writing, reporting, visual storytelling, research, analysis, investigative techniques and multi-platform delivery. Most students take JOUR 40983 (which is required of all journalism majors) during their final semester at TCU, though some choose to take it a semester early.
