Missouri University Journalism Workshop
Learn to be a journalist in multiple real-world settings.
Summer Dates: June 20-26, 2020
Application Deadline: April 24, 2020
The MUJW workshop will allow students to investigate and develop packages across many areas of coverage. Students will be immersed in learning The Missouri Method of journalism at the world’s oldest journalism school. Working in The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute as well as having exposure to the Columbia Missourian and KOMU TV-8, mid-Missouri’s local NBC affiliate, students will have the opportunity to learn from teaching professionals in the industry while getting the chance to research and develop original story ideas for the Urban Pioneer, MUJW’s online publication.
Original reporting experience will give students real newsroom skills and allow for more creative work. Since not all assignments pan out, visiting journalists and faculty will have information on current issues that can generate more ideas for coverage. We will also focus on accuracy and covering diverse communities that are often left out of the news coverage.
During the workshop, participants stay in a Mizzou residence hall which is staffed with residence hall counselors. Participants eat at Plaza 900 dining hall for breakfast and dinner.
Student work may be published on the MUJW Urban Pioneer website and in the School’s professional, real-world, award-winning news outlets:
- Columbia Missourian, the City of Columbia’s morning newspaper.
- KOMU-TV, mid-Missouri’s NBC affiliate.
- KBIA-FM, mid-Missouri’s NPR affiliate.
