Summer Journalism Academy

Boston University College of Communication 

The Summer Journalism Academy is a two-week, hands-on experience for high school students interested in journalism, writing or photography — a unique opportunity to expand their skills and prepare for college. Each academy instructor is also a working journalist, so what’s taught is grounded in real-life experience. Each lesson is tied to its practical application, by giving students actual reporting assignments. Each day is a sample of life as a news reporter.

Students choose between our on-campus or learn-from-home programs. On-campus students may also opt for a special photojournalism track.

Session 1: June 20 to July 1, 2022

Session 2: July 5 to July 15, 2022

Open to students ages 14 to 18 and entering grades 9 to 12 in Fall 2022, as well as students graduating high school in 2022.
