Journalism, Politics & the Media - Fall/Spring
Learn how journalism influences politics
Immerse yourself in the city where journalism, politics and media intersect. At Georgetown you will have the opportunity to work with those involved in forming laws and policy and learn and to analyze the current political events that shape our democracy. Through an internship and course study, you will see first-hand the role played by journalists and the news media in setting the agenda for public debate, the ways that television and film craft narratives that give meaning to our lives and the political changes that are affected by the media. During your time in Washington, DC you will benefit from access to the nation’s capital and working in the center of U.S. politics.
