A new journalism study abroad program to Africa will be offered by the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism. Students will take two classes, get hands-on field experience in the media industry, volunteer in advocacy institutions and work alongside government or service sectors in Zambia. The program will start this year in late November shortly after Thanksgiving and end just before Christmas.
Two courses offer students exposure and immersion into the conditions under which Zambia and the African media in general and journalists operate. Students experience the complexity of the economic and political environment in the news media (TV, Radio, and Magazine), advertising or marketing firms, PR organizations and non-for-profit sector. The study abroad program is suitable for students specializing in Public Relations, Strategic Communication, Journalism, Visual Communication, Peace and Advocacy Communication. A Tier 3 course is offered to fulfill a university requirement. You can also earn up to 60 hours towards your internship requirement.
