WR 2213: Introduction to Journalism

Professor James Dempsey

New York Times & Wall Street Journal

New York Times

The Robert A. Foisie School of Business is sponsoring free access for everyone with a WPI email address to NYTimes.com for the 2017-18 academic year.  This exciting service will provide you with an e-subscription to The New York Times to stay connected with the events of the day.  In addition, you will have access to the extensive NYT database dating back to 1851 – a tremendous research tool.  Several faculty in the School of Business are incorporating The Times into their courses and we trust this service will add value in a variety of ways across campus.
