Kristine Villanueva and Carrie Brown
Master of Arts (MA)
This report is the final product of my Social Journalism practicum for the Class of 2020 at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism. My community focus for the degree program was underserved voters in West Virginia during the pandemic election. Within this report, I discuss the community that I intended to serve with engagement journalism, the activities and approach that I took to pursue that engagement, and how I evaluated the project with both quantitative and qualitative metrics. I also discuss ideas that I learned during the process of this project, and offer reflections on the philosophy of engagement journalism. I include an appendix of work from my time at the Newmark J-School, and finally the slides from my final presentation from December 15th, 2020 are enclosed.
