Over the years, Boston University's College of Communication (COM) has produced 20 graduates who have won or shared the Pulitzer Prize—and COM offers an exciting variety of journalism courses during Summer Term. You'll find everything from basic photography for aspiring photojournalists to arts criticism, feature writing, and news reporting, among others.
Summer Term also offers a unique opportunity to practice travel writing with renowned College of Communication faculty member Lou Ureneck. Professor Ureneck's New York Times blog "From the Ground Up" describes the project that led to his recent book, Cabin—Two Brothers, a Dream, and Five Acres in Maine. His previous book, Backcast: Fatherhood, Fly-fishing, and a River Journey through the Heart of Alaska, was winner of the 2007 National Outdoor Book Award.
