Welcome to WJMC

George Mason University is the host of the Washington Journalism and Media Conference (WJMC) and each summer welcomes high school student leaders from all over the country as National Youth Correspondents. National Youth Correspondents join the Mason community which includes students and faculty from all over the world. Mason is both the largest public university in Virginia and one of the most culturally diverse universities in the nation. This summer’s conferences will take place July 12 to 17 and July 19 to 24, 2020.

Mason attracts proven and innovative leaders in communications, media research, new media, and electronic journalism. Faculty members have developed the WJMC curriculum to suit the needs and potential of the nation’s most talented future leaders in the field. The conference curriculum includes hands-on learning with industry leaders from the Mason faculty as well as international media outlets and Washington insiders. National Youth Correspondents will experience an integrated and forward-thinking approach to journalism and media, while acquiring valuable “in-the-trenches” knowledge.
