New York, N.Y.--The 2012 World Journalism Institute summer multi-week course began on Sunday, May 13, in New York City. Beginning a new decade with The King's College in Manhattan, this year's course is the 25th multi-week course which WJI has offered since 1999. Many years there were two, three and even four courses offered.

This year's students came from as far away as South Africa and include young journalists from universities as diverse as University of Southern California and Patrick Henry College in Virginia. Director Robert Case said, "Based on early evaluations, we expect to eventually offer several paid internships to members of this year's class."
