Northwestern students study together on the campus green.

Communications practicums

Beacon student newspaper

How many journalists started out writing for the school newspaper? A lot. Don’t just read about editorial ethics, news beats, evasive sources and press deadlines, do the real deal—until the wee hours of Friday morning—as a reporter, writer or editor of the Northwestern Beacon.
