2011 Summer High School Journalism Workshop

June 19-24, 2011

Spectrum coverThe School of Communication holds a week-long journalism workshop each summer where high school students can explore a future in journalism. APPLY NOW!

WHO: High school students thinking about careers as newspaper, magazine or website reporters; writers; photojournalists; graphic designers; or TV and radio reporters and anchors. Must like excitement, challenges and fun, and be willing to learn. Some journalistic experience is helpful, but novices can apply. Enthusiasm is a must.

WHAT: Students will select an interest area — print/digital journalism, photojournalism, or radio and TV broadcasting — and will leave at the end of the week with a complete magazine and accompanying website, multimedia pieces, published photos or a short TV or radio program. Instructors include Point Park University School of Communication faculty members and guest instructors.

WHEN: June 19-24, 2011

WHERE: Point Park University, but some local travel to interview, videotape and photograph sources and attend Pittsburgh area news events is required.

WHY: You'll get hands-on journalistic experience, learn from experienced professors and award-winning journalists, and live in a University residence for a week, where you'll establish new and possibly lasting friendships with students who share your interests.

To Apply: Download and print an application. Hurry, space is limited!

Workshop tuition is $350, which includes a dormitory room for the week, flex dollars for meals, and social activities. Scholarships are available.
