AP Style Editing
3 Credit Hours

Get ready to learn to think like an editor. If you're already starting to think like an editor, you're probably wondering about that singular "job." There are many editing positions, and editors' titles (and their meanings) vary widely from publication to publication and even to online media. A managing editor at a small newspaper may do all the combined tasks of an assistant editor, senior editor and caption writer at a national magazine. There are associate editors, field editors, contributing editors, editors-in-chief, articles editors and more. All of them, no matter what their duties, use the same set of skills. In this class you'll learn the basics, as well as many tricks of the trade.
