BOSTON UNIVERSITY - SUMMER JOURNALISM INSTITUTE
Are you someone who excels at writing, works for the school newspaper, or is thinking about Boston as a college destination?
If so, there is a special opportunity: Boston University's Summer Journalism Institute, presented by the College of Communication and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting.
