As I’ve now visited 4 top liberal arts schools (Williams, Amherst, Haverford, Swarthmore), I’ve realized I want to attend the one that will enable me to pursue my interest in foreign journalism. That’s why I’m looking for a school that emphasizes both writing and international issues.

Journalists at the Providence Journal have told me that it is most important to build a deep knowledge base and to develop the critical thinking that is so essential to successful journalism. Thus I’m convinced that a liberal arts education is a better option than formal journalism training.

Can you discuss how Williams–through its mission, academics, and the student body’s political activism–would be the best place for a student who is passionate about journalism and international issues?

Are there any Eph journalists reading EphBlog who can talk about how their Williams experience laid the foundation for a successful journalism career?
