Signature Programs

  • Knight Program in Journalism Ethics
    Twice a year for the past several decades, eminent communications professionals from throughout the country have come to Lexington for a weekend seminar with Washington and Lee journalism and mass communications majors about the ethical challenges that arise in today's media workplace.
  • Business Journalism
    The field of business journalism has grown dramatically in the past 20 years. Yet the preparation of journalists to write about economic and financial topics has not kept up with that growth. Daily newspapers, specialized magazines, Internet-news sites and television stations are all eager for employees who can both understand business concepts and communicate those concepts in terms that readers and viewers will easily understand.
