Experience counts in the competitive field of journalism, and there is no better place to gain valuable reporting, writing and editing skills than the number one news town in the world, Washington, D.C. This intensive eight-week program is designed for students looking for professional, hands-on training in print or broadcast journalism, PR and politics.
One of Washington's top academic and internship programs, IPJ has provided undergraduates with the ultimate Washington, D.C., summer experience for the past two decades. The Institute selects many of the best undergraduate journalism students in the country to attend classes in economics, ethics and leadership and also serve in internships with major news organizations. Participants attend regular briefings at principal news sites such as The U.S. House of Representatives, The White House and The State Department.
With a single application, students are enrolled at Georgetown University, live in a furnished apartment on campus in the center of D.C., and are placed in a competitive internship for eight weeks.
