Challenge your students to be a journalist this summer


Now in its 11th year, Boston University College of Communication will continue to host its Summer Journalism Institute. By "making Boston their beat," students will have the opportunity to build a solid foundation in journalistic writing and become better storytellers while reporting the facts.
Students will attend a college-level writing class in the morning. In the afternoon, they are assigned to newsrooms to work with award-winning journalists such as Pulitzer winner, Rochelle Sharpe, as their editor to cover different stories – entertainment, politics, sports, metro, and investigations – in the Boston area. Students also have the option of selecting our photojournalism track with veteran photojournalist and Boston Globe journalist, Stephen Haines. Events range from special guest lectures with journalists at local news stations, such as WBUR and WGBH, to exploring historic sites and museums, including Fenway Park and the Museum of Fine Arts.
Our two-week workshops begin on June 22, July 6, and July 20. At the end of each session, your student will walk away with:
  • Articles to add to their professional portfolio
  • A unique experience to write about in their college application essay
  • An appreciation of journalism and the confidence to use their voice to tell stories in their own communities
  • New friends
While we accept applications on a rolling basis, we strongly encourage students to apply early to secure their seat. To qualify for this opportunity, please have them apply.
If students are accepted to the program and pay the registration fee by April 30, they will receive a special discount of $500 off the tuition. Just pass along this discount code to them to use online: BUSUMMER20.
