We are now recruiting for the newspaper staff.
Students will have the opportunity to write, design, edit, promote with social media and take photographs for both the campus newspaper and magazine. Students will be able to focus in the areas that they prefer and finish their semester with tangible, printed copies of their work that they can use for internships, resumes and jobs.
There are two courses that allow you to become a part of this process:
To write for the newspaper or magazine you have two choices.
1. Cooperative Education 150 – This is a 2-unit lab where you attend one orientation at the beginning of the semester and then write 10 stories (or photos or graphics) for The Telescope on your own time. You can work in our newsroom but you are not required to. You really set your own schedule and pick the kind of stories you want to write about. We correspond with you mostly via phone and email although we love it when people in this class come in and hang out with us. Estimated time it would take a week (6 hours)
2. Journalism 105. This is The Telescope class and it meets Monday and Wednesday from 11 – 1:50. This course requires 10 written projects, 10 story ideas and other pertinent work. This class is offered in a HyFlex format and allows you to become more involved and be considered for an editor role. Estimated hours per week (6-9 hours, including class time.)

We publish seven times per semester and also have an active website, www.the-telescope.com.
