Why Students Chose Georgetown:

  • Headshot of Katherine Boehret

    I wanted a broader writing experience and insight. I took classes like Covering Capitol Hill, Investigative Journalism, and Narrative Nonfiction, which threw me into unknown territory and forced me to learn a style that was far different than my weekly column. My writing has improved, and I learned a lot of new style techniques from the professors who taught me.”
