University of St. Thomas ThreeSixty Journalism Summer Workshop



Designed primarily for minority students with an interest in writing and reporting—especially those who work on high school newspapers or television production—this tuition-free program consists of writing and reporting courses, layout and design classes, visits to Twin Cities' newspapers and television stations, team production of special newspaper pages for publication in two area newspapers, and assignment of a professional reporter/writer as a mentor for each student. Writers, photographers, artists and editors employed by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press; reporters, producers and photographers from local TV stations; and members of the St. Thomas journalism staff serve as faculty for the program. Particularly able pupils may earn a four-year scholarship to study journalism at the University of St. Thomas.
