The Course initiates the students in the art of the interview as a genre, but also as a mean of documentation for journalists. During the classes, there will be more subjects on the identification of a topic or personality for their interviews and also on the pre-interview documentation. The students, during the discussion within the group, but also with guest speakers (professional journalists in interviews), will find out more about the stages and the characteristics of this genre depending on mass-media.
Another chapter of the course is regarding the development of the abilities to ask questions and obtain the expected answer. There are more practical exercises in group, but also on the field, so the students will have the opportunities to work and understand better the connection with the sources and editing techniques. The final element of the Course is interview editing. It consists of different editing techniques and presentation of the interview in mass-media. The Course ends with a final written work where the students will show their knowledge and skills accumulated during the classes.
