Located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, The Wash-

You live on Capitol Hill, with your own lab and newsroom available

24/7, whenever you need it. You’re within sight of the big white dome and within easy walking distance of Eastern Market, Union Station and the National Mall.

The Washington Journalism Center is a semester-long study program in

Washington D.C., created for students interested in the field of journalism. WJC students take classes that will focus on developing and honing their personal writing skills. They will also study media history and the future of mass media. These classes—Foundations for Media Involvement; Reporting in Washington; and Washington, News and Public Discourse—combined with an internship at a top news publication, help students learn to integrate their faith in a journalism career. Students also participate in service learning opportunities as part of the WJC experience. The program recommends that students be granted the equivalent of 16 hours of

credits by their home institution.

What is truth and who decides? Is it the news source or the reader, the

writer or the editor? Can PR be true? Can journalists turn into speechwriters? Where do you fit in this picture and the emerging world of online, digital, multimedia news? Journalists still need to find answers — to the basic “who, what, when, where and how?”

Now there are new questions to ask about news and the future of news. Hunt for some answers and then explore the deeper meaning of ‘Why’ at the Washington Journalism Center.

WJC STUDENTS LIVE EIGHT BLOCKS FROM THE U.S CAPITOL AND SUPREME COURT...

. . . in a fully-furnished apartment housing four to six students. Each apartment is complete with a well-equipped kitchen and washer and dryer. Other apartment building amenities include: a business center, two lounges with hi-definition flat screen TVs and a rooftop deck with a panoramic view of Capitol Hill. Students also have access to a recreation room with exercise equipment and free weights. During the term, students enjoy informal recreation and social outings. There are times for worship and special events for fun, relaxation, service and spiritual growth — often in conjunction with BestSemester’s American Studies Program students. WJC Students are invited to take advantage of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian museums, the Library of Congress, historic Georgetown and more. With Washington DC as the home for your classroom, the possibilities are endless!

WJC students have worked at Market News International, The Washington Examiner, the PBS “Religion & Ethics” show, the metro desk of the Washington Times, Religion News Service, United Press International, The Hill, Baptist Press, The Voice of the Hill and in other mainstream newsrooms.
