This is an in-person program and will take place on the Emerson College campus in Boston.
The Journalism Institute helps rising sophomores, juniors and seniors explore digital journalism techniques in a variety of multimedia formats.
The Journalism Institute is offered as a noncredit or college credit program option.
Students move beyond the traditional methods of communicating news and explore using Twitter and other social media through their mobile devices to find and interview sources, take and format pictures, and shoot and edit video. These elements get scripted to create packages online and on the air. The program takes advantage of Emerson College's state-of-the-art journalism labs giving students access to the ultimate multimedia learning environment. On the final day of the Institute, the group will present a sample of their work to an audience of family, friends, and peers.
As a student in the Journalism Institute program, you will:
*Identify and synthesize the latest news trends and practices (news literacy) and ethics
*Compose, photograph and format pictures for news
*Shoot and edit video for news packages
*Conduct interviews and produce feature stories on parallel pre-college summer programs
*Develop a college entrance portfolio by producing multimedia news and feature stories to be published on the Journalism Institute website
