Most of JMSC's courses require hand-on experience and help you understand new concepts or skills through exercises. Teachers will encourage you to try different tasks and develop your own interests in different news beats. I took three courses on finance and economy when I studied at JMSC, which has laid a solid foundation for my current career as a business reporter.
