The Summer Journalism Institute-Online, which qualifies for four college credits, helps rising sophomores, juniors and seniors adapt traditional reporting methods into the online space. Our fieldwork explores Twitter, Instagram and Tik-Tok as a way to cultivate sources, gauge trends, glean insight, and construct multimedia narratives. Drawing on Emerson's broad experience with technical innovation and interactive storytelling, audio, still photos, and video elements get workshopped in one-on-one consults and group settings. This summer course provides high schoolers with a digital portfolio that meets the most challenging standards and prepares them for college-level work.
Journalism Institute is offered as a non-credit or credit program.
