It's time to get to work. This isn't a tour of the Washington Post. It's a chance to talk with professionals and apply what you learn. Industry internships are balanced by class time and guest lecturers. Through the Foundations for Media Involvement, Reporting in Washington and Washington, News & Public Discourse classes, you broaden your knowledge and experiences. Form the foundation for your future - whether you end up writing the news or consuming it.
