The faculty and staff at SMPA are so excited to welcome new and returning students to campus! After meeting nearly all of the 66 SMPA majors of the Class of 2014 at Freshman Orientation last night, we’re ready to kick off the Fall 2010 semester. We’d also like to welcome our 22 new graduate students!

SMPA is excited to offer the Washington Post Seminar in Fall 2010. Join journalism students from Maryland, American and Howard universities for weekly seminars at the Post conducted by some of the country’s top reporters and editors. Students meet weekly to discuss topical issues, including politics, economics, social issues, investigative reporting, entertainment, and the future and business of newspapers.
The seminars will meet Tuesdays from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Post. The one-credit pass/fail course introduces students to the newspaper and news on the web, educates them about possible journalism careers and brings reality and immediacy to the classroom experience. Five slots are available.
Interested SMPA majors and minors should submit a registration transaction form and resume to Prof. Al May at firstname.lastname@example.org. Preference will be given to seniors but application is open to all JMC and PCM majors and minors.
Deadline for application is April 7.
