Arizona State University Cronkite Summer Journalism Institute



Conducted by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU's downtown campus, the Summer Journalism Institute comprises two tracks: the Broadcast Institute and the Print Journalism Institute. Both institutes seek to prepare high schoolers for college journalism studies while letting them explore future career options in a college setting. The Broadcast Institute features classes on writing, reporting, videography and editing; the opportunity to anchor, report, write, produce and direct a newscast; chances to meet and converse with broadcast professionals; and visits to local radio and television stations. The Print Journalism Institute includes classes on writing, editing, layout, design and photojournalism; discussions with professional journalists who provide advice on media careers; production of a newspaper; and visits to Phoenix media outlets.
