EuroMedia academic visit

Program Participants in front of Eiffel Tower in Paris


LONDON: London's many celebrated historical sites include Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and Trafalgar Square. Its museums and galleries contain collections of unparalleled scope, and its theater companies are the finest in the world. A visit to the BBC and the 2012 Olympic Stadium are just a few of our academic visits in this amazing city.

PARIS: Explore the City of Light and its famous historical and cultural sites and districts including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral,  and the Arc De Triomphe. Hear from Bloomberg and CNN correspondents and have a lecture at the Louvre.

MILAN: Milan is the business, finance, and fashion capital of Italy, and a city with rich cultural history. Home to the Sforza Castle, the magnificent Duomo, exclusive shopping in stylish settings like the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and Da Vinci's Last Supper, it's hard to imagine a more vibrant and diverse continental city on which to conclude our trip. Explore Italy's unique media culture at the crossroads between historical trends and cutting-edge technology.



Academic Program & Courses

Ready for a European adventure of a lifetime that offers media education coupled with rich cultural experience? We’ll travel to three of Europe’s media capitals—London, Paris, and Milan. You’ll meet new friends and become a foreign correspondent, documenting the global impact of new media technologies as they permanently change communication within and between cultures. We’ll go inside more than a dozen global news and media organizations to learn about how they handle strategic communication and news coverage in this new social media landscape. Visits include the BBC, The Guardian and The Economist Magazine in London and Bloomberg and CNN in Paris, for exposure to the highest levels of journalism and public relations as well as local culture, for an experience unlike anything you'll encounter in the United States.

Led by Cronkite Global Initiatives Director, Dr. Bill Silcock and Dr. Dawn Gilpin, this program offers a unique blend of hands-on reporting and strategic communication experience abroad and behind-the-scenes look at Europe’s—and the world’s—most influential media institutions.
