Emerson College’s on-campus Pre-College Journalism Institute helps rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors explore digital journalism techniques in a variety of multimedia formats. Students move beyond the traditional methods of communicating news and explore using social media through their mobile devices to find and interview sources, take and format pictures, and shoot and edit video. These elements get scripted to create packages online and on the air. The program takes advantage of our state-of-the-art journalism labs on our urban campus in downtown Boston, giving students access to the ultimate multimedia learning environment. 

Participation in this three-week summer institute allows students to gain hands-on journalism skills by conducting interviews; attending news events; and experiencing live, current events happening in Boston. On the final day of the Institute, the group will present a sample of their work to an audience of family, friends, and peers. 

The Journalism Institute is offered as a noncredit or college credit program option.
