A Discover the World of Communication student project.

Student Work

Discover the World of Communication students learn to build a digital portfolio, script, shoot and edit a film, write news stories, speak with confidence, persuade, inform, educate and entertain. SOC's 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 students 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.
