Course Spotlight: Covering Latino Communities

Covering Latino Communities

If you still are looking for a Winter term class, consider Prof. Escalona’s Covering Latino Communities. The class is an amazing opportunity to learn about Latinx in the media from a journalism perspective, but you do not have to be a journalism major to take it. It is also an excellent opportunity to improve your writing, build your portfolio and network with the amazing professional speakers that will visit the class.

Class meets Thursday nights 5:45 p.m.- 9:00 p.m. in the Daley Building (14 E Jackson).

Please contact Prof. De Moya (director of the Latino Media and Communication program) at  if you have any questions.
