DePaul Journalism Program/Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Bootcamp

CSIS JOURNALISM BOOTCAMPSUMMER 2021

The DePaul Journalism Program and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a bipartisan think tank, jointly offer a unique practicum experience in Summer 2021 to develop knowledge and skills in multimedia reporting and explanatory journalism.

We seek 10 talented students to represent DePaul in the CSIS Journalism Bootcamp, a virtual program that involves a week-long reporting project (July 16-23, 2021) to explore Section 230, social media, privacy concerns and content moderation.

Selected students will have an opportunity to interview world-renowned experts and interact with veteran journalists as well as top-level speakers on the subject matter. During the boot-camp week, DePaul students will work with CSIS’ iDeas Lab mentors via teleconferencing and produce an in-depth story package in multimedia (text, audio, video, data visualization). The reporting project will be published on the CSIS official website and shared with its networks of experts and journalists.
Continuing students participating in this program have the option of enrolling in a summer class (special topics/experiential learning) and earning credit for their contributions to the reporting project.
