Journalism teachers and publication/media advisers can receive three hours of graduate credit — free of charge. JOMC 491, "Teaching Interactive Media in the Secondary School," will be offered July 10-16. The course will be taught in the School of Media and Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Current journalism teachers and publication/online media advisers -- and those who may soon find themselves teaching journalism -- are encouraged to apply.
