2014 CAPSTONE Journalism Class – Table of Contents

Capstone-Seminar2In the spring of 2014, New Jersey City University journalism students spent 15 weeks researching and writing “long form” stories for the Journalism Capstone course. Each of the stories deals in some way with an urban theme — primarily Jersey City, but also Newark and New York City.

Gothictimes.net is proud to present their work.
