This course is intended to introduce students to the communication field of photojournalism. Defined as communicating through photography, photojournalism has historically been viewed as a very powerful tool in documenting the world around us. From community events, conflicts around the world, the political arena, high school through professional sports and the environment, photojournalists are empowered to show to their audience events that affect their daily lives. Truth and accuracy are the keys to good photojournalism.
