Instructor-Led Courses

The Knight Center’s Journalism Courses program offers two kinds of training: Instructor-led courses that are available during a specific time-frame (usually four to six weeks) and self-directed courses. For the instructor-led courses, students need to register themselves in the courses and then they gain access to the learning materials and can interact with other students and the instructor(s) while the course is taking place.
