The Boston University Washington, D.C., Journalism Program offers Journalism students a rare opportunity: to work as professional reporters in the most important world capital, covering events that shape the world and preparing byline stories for daily newspapers and broadcast outlets. Participants cover Capitol Hill news conferences, congressional hearings and other important events, then work with experienced editors to shape their stories for daily newspapers, broadcast outlets and websites. The program is open to graduate students and qualified juniors and seniors specializing in News-Editorial, Magazine, Broadcast, Photojournalism and Multimedia. Newsroom facilities are located in the BU Washington Programs offices near Dupont Circle, and housing is provided in the city’s Woodley Park neighborhood, adjacent to the National Zoo and just one subway stop north of the newsroom location.
