What you will learn

Journalism Career School

Journalists are an integral part of the political process. By keeping the public informed about the activities of public figures, international developments, and culture, journalists shape the way we think and the way our society operates. But all too often, liberal bias in our media means that conservatism does not get a fair hearing in the public spotlight.

That is why the Leadership Institute is helping conservatives to succeed in journalism.
However, careers in journalism are notoriously competitive. The good news is that journalism is an ever-changing field, and the opportunities to make an impression, whether it is online, on television, or in print, are limitless.

Whether you want to be on television, or pursue a career as a writer, the Journalism Career School will give you the tools to succeed.
  • Day 1) Traditional Journalism: You will learn how to succeed in getting a job with a publication, building and using contacts in media, and writing stories that get you noticed.
  • Day 2) Broadcast Journalism: You will learn how to get yourself on camera, practice, and analyze your television techniques in LI's studios.
  • Day 3) Watchdog and Citizen Journalism: You will learn how to build your following online; create your own publication and videos that get you noticed!
