American University’s J-school takes students back to the building blocks of journalism, laying a foundation as a springboard for success. From the main newspaper, The Eagle, to ATV and American Literary Magazine, AU lets you choose how to bring your stories to life like their very own 2016 Hearst award winner Cuneyt Dil. The program owes its successful students to the faculty. “Classes at AU are small. You really get to know the professors. You really get to know your classmates,” senior Emilie Ikeda said. “The connections people make [are really important]. Even if they’re not in your field, they know someone. The alumni are willing to connect.” Be prepared to capture distant cultures and beautiful landscapes for spreads in National Geographic, or to expose the seedy underbelly of the political sphere with The Washington Post with both publications headquartered only a metro ride away.
