Urban Journalism Workshop

Multimedia Backpack Journalism

For more than 20 years, the Urban Journalism Workshop has offered aspiring journalists a sense of the real world of news reporting.
During this intensive two-week summer program, high school students use Diederich College of Communication facilities and backpacks loaded with $4,000 of equipment to boot up, record, shoot video, master iPhoto and conquer Garage Band. The result is the multimedia website
The Urban Voice, capturing diverse perspectives and mirroring the converging worlds of media.
