Media and American Politics in Manchester, New Hampshire
Every four years, politicians and journalists in the U.S. turn their attention to New Hampshire, which for a week in February, becomes the sole focus of the presidential election. Every major candidate and their surrogates, and many journalists, will descend on the state, and students participating in this program will be there too. Students will meet with the major political players and talk with citizens as they prepare to vote. Part of the trip will involve reporting on the events that will unfold, although students do not need formal journalism training.
In 2020, student work from Media and American Politics in New Hampshire was collected and posted on presidentialhopefuls.org.
