Journalism summer program at UGA

High-school students are invited to dive into the world of mass communication at the Media and Leadership Academy at the University of Georgia, June 3-8, 2018.

Students in the academy will choose one of three tracks: journalism, entertainment, or advertising and public relations. They’ll learn about their specific track in a classroom setting during the first half of the week, then spend the second half of the week doing team projects to develop their skills.

The academy is a program of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, which is considered one of the nation’s best journalism schools. (Full disclosure: I am an alumna. But it’s still true.)

Students will live in UGA residence halls and will have evening activities organized by the academy staff.

The Media and Leadership Academy is open to rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders, as well as to incoming UGA freshmen who plan to pursue a major in the Grady College.

The program cost is $550 per student; scholarships are available.
