Journalism Summer School Program

Students at ISSOS who choose our journalism summer course will be taught to sharpen their research and writing skills and debate social, political and ethical issues. These skills have wide-ranging applications and will stand students in good stead during their education and beyond.

Students will return home with a stronger foundation of journalistic skills and values, and will be equipped with the techniques for writing and editing copy.

Journalism

What will it cover?

 The course combines inspirational seminars and practical workshops with individual and group exercises:

  • Enhance your essay writing skills and learn to structure an argument
  • Undertake practical assignments - compile a news report, research and write a feature article, write a review
  • Learn the techniques for editing copy and designing pages for publication 
  • Use the power of language to communicate effectively and inspire others

Students will investigate current affairs, practice the core journalism skills of interviewing and research and learn to write inspiring and accurate articles on their own choice of topic. As a team, the students on this course will assist in the production of the ISSOS Times, the summer school’s newspaper, working in collaboration with the photography students, thus enhancing their team working skills. 

Learn to use the world around you for inspiration and develop your journalistic skills to inform, influence and entertain others.
