For 35 years, The University of Alabama Department of Journalism has been committed to increasing diversity in America’s newsrooms with its Multicultural Journalism Program. While still in high school, 10 to 15 students are selected to attend an intensive workshop held on the University campus each summer. The workshop emphasizes multimedia reporting, writing, editing, graphics, photography, production and basic communication skills, and participants produce the MJP Journal to showcase what they’ve learned.
