About us

American University’s Discover the World of Communication program, developed by the School of Communication’s Sarah Menke-Fish and taught by faculty, combines forces with the National Student Leadership Conference to teach students from all over the world about journalism, scriptwriting, photography, broadcasting and public speaking as well as leadership. About 400 students participate in Washington at AU, and more than 100 are heading to our West Coast location, the University of California-Berkeley.

The 2014 Washington program runs from mid-June to mid-July and the 2014 California workshops are in early August.

In the journalism classes, students will write news, features and sports stories and visit professional news organizations.
