CCCU Washington, DC: Journalism Center

Washington DC JounalismIt's time to get to work. This isn't a tour of the Washington Post. It's a chance to talk with professionals and apply what you learn. Industry internships are balanced by class time and guest lecturers. Through the Foundations for Media Involvement, Reporting in Washington and Washington, News & Public Discourse classes, you broaden your knowledge and experiences. Form the foundation for your future - whether you end up writing the news or consuming it.

The Washington Journalism Center is an advanced, experiential semester on Capitol Hill that will cultivate professional news skills and encourage students to think through the implications of being a Christian working in the news media in a city that is home to the powerful and the powerless. For more information, check out Bestsemester: Washington Journalism Center.

 

Student Life

The Journalism Program is located in the same housing unit on Capitol Hill as the American Studies Program. Students live eight blocks from the U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress. Within easy walking distance is the Eastern Market, Union Station, and the Smithsonian museums along the National Mall. Buses, metro trains, and taxis are readily available. Note that additional costs of the program include food and transportation costs.
