Caplin News offers two bureau experiences: Washington, D.C., and Miami. The Caplin News Washington Bureau Program is designed to offer students the opportunity to study in one of the most newsworthy locations and media centers in the world while networking with professional journalists, community leaders, and FIU alumni. The Miami Bureau Program offers students an immersive reporting experience in South Florida.
Each program offers hands-on academic experiences that reach beyond the traditional classroom structure. Through a combination of theoretical and experiential formats, students will engage in lively academic discussions, traverse each city while conducting investigative field work, and participate in professional workshops and events. Individually, each program will have its own unique focus and point of interest.
The goals of the Bureau programs are to:
- Provide advanced journalism training to student reporters and hands-on experience in reporting, editing and production/design
- Provide student reporters with media platforms to publish their works, giving them professional visibility in the field
- Help student reporters establish professional connections and career development opportunities
- Provide students reporters with a platform to experience personal and professional growth
