Advanced Editing
is focused on the idea that copy editors need many skills and qualities, with journalistic integrity strong among them. This course builds on the language and design skills you began to master in your previous copy editing course. In Advanced Editing, you continue learning QuarkXPress and develop higher-level layout and editing skills. With the editing process as a focus, you gain a widening exposure to news and current professional thought while developing a deeper understanding of the journalistic process. As always, the ability to think clearly and well and to then demonstrate that ability is the goal.
