Program Overview

Program Description:
The Institute for Education in International Media (ieiMedia) is sponsoring intensive journalism study-abroad courses in Urbino, Italy in the summer of 2012. The programs are open to English-speaking college students and recent graduates from all schools. Each media course is taught by a team of journalism educators and professional journalists, including two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists.

Students can sign up for either Section 1 Multimedia Reporting or Section 2 Magazine Reporting. Students in Section 1 Multimedia Reporting will study photography, international reporting, and video, and will create an online magazine about the community. Each student will be required to write and create a slideshow as well as shoot and edit a short video story. Students in Section 2 Magazine Reporting will study magazine reporting and writing, and will create text and photographs for a print-on-demand travel magazine about Urbino and the surrounding area.

Most of our students are journalism or communications majors but those majoring in other subjects are welcome as well. Non-journalism majors should have a strong interest in reporting and some experience working for a college or professional publication. The program is open to graduate students. We’d be happy to talk with you about supervising an independent project that would qualify for graduate credit at your school, or to offer this experience as a graduate internship.
Setting Description:
Urbino lies in the northern part of central Italy’s Marche Region, nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Many say the Renaissance started here under the patronage of Duke Federico da Montefeltro, whose twin-turreted palace still houses an outstanding collection of period art. Other attractions include a unique botanical garden and the boyhood home of the Renaissance artist Raphael. Lively beach towns are a bus ride away.
Cost:
$4,995 (Includes: Tuition – 3 credits, accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinners on most days, travel insurance, welcome and goodbye dinners, program activities and cultural events).
