UAA + Press Club

It’s already a complicated election cycle and it’s only just begun. Whether you are a local print reporter covering municipal races or a statewide radio or TV reporter trying to cover just about everything, we want to help!

Political Reporting Cohort

Sessions begin Sept. 1, 2022

Tuition reimbursement available 


JPC A 490 (CRN 76209) Selected Topics in Journalism and Communications  (Online 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. Thursdays)

The Alaska Press Club in partnership with the UAA Journalism Department, is excited to offer and pay your tuition for an online political reporting class designed for working journalists. The once a week, 8:30 a.m. Zoom class, featuring state and national experts, won’t interfere with your work day but will give you an opportunity to ask questions, make connections and build your source network. Hosted by Prof. Elizabeth Arnold, classes range from the basics of vetting candidates and getting past the stump speech to preparing for elections with the dynamics of voting by mail and ranked-choice voting. We’ll also have a class dedicated to the constitutional convention. (The first class is Sept. 1 so register asap!)
