Get a taste of your career-to-be at our Summer High School Journalism workshop.
This year’s focus will be on visual storytelling. You will learn to tell stories through video and photography and also meet practicing media professionals. At the end of the camp, we will create a show with all of the visual content and premiere it at the end-of-camp reception. The show will then air on the campus television station’s website. Additionally, students will tour Pittsburgh's best venues. In the past, students have visited: PNC Park, Washington Wild Things, PPG Paints Arena, Stage AE and attended a live taping at KDKA-TV. Students will also soak up Point Park University's urban campus participating in activities around the city of Pittsburgh. What will you do in these workshops? Students will focus on their area of interest (news, sports, entertainment, the environment, politics) Learn and apply the aesthetic principles of photography and video Develop better writing and interviewing skills Network with professionals working in the field
