DePaul Journalism Program/Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Bootcamp in Washington, DC

The DePaul Journalism Program and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a bipartisan think tank, jointly offer an experiential, project-based learning opportunity through the CSIS Journalism Bootcamp in Spring 2020.

We seek 10 talented students to represent DePaul in this program, which will involve an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. (May 10-17, 2020).

Selected students will enroll in an evening class in Spring 2020 to conduct in-depth research and hone journalism and technical skills in preparation for the journalism bootcamp. During the week-long stay in D.C. students will gain practical experience working with global security expert sources and policy experts to produce a multimedia reporting project on the challenges to U.S. policy in the South China Sea. Students will partner with CSIS’ iDeas Lab production team and learn from veteran journalists covering D.C.

The multimedia reporting project will be published on the CSIS official website.
