2016 Summer Registration Now Open

Welcome to Discover the World of Communication where you will learn to build a digital portfolio, script, shoot and edit a film, write a news story like a pro, speak with confidence, persuade, inform, educate and entertain. Our professional, hands-on workshops- open to students entering grades 9 through 12- are taught by American University School of Communication faculty and communication professionals.

During class and after hours explore the city from a variety of angles. View live television and radio broadcasts at local studios such as NBC 4, WTTG Fox 5, NPR and ESPN Radio, cover a Nationals baseball game or WNBA game from a press seat, and tour local attractions including the National Zoo, Newseum, National Cathedral, Georgetown and the Smithsonian museums.
