The course is very informative. This is enough for someone who considers journalism as a profession. It's all about self learning. I'm so glad that I found this lesson. I participated both part-1 and 2 and really enjoyed a lot...! Thanks to UC of Berkeley and all course instructors. You people made me so happy.
