The University of Texas at Tyler Department of Communication will offer a travel study experience to Europe in May 2012, Dr. Jill E. Blondin, Center for Global Education director, announced.
Students may choose between two courses – “ JOUR 4329: Web and Publication Design” and “COMM 5329/JOUR 4329: International Multimedia Storytelling” – with each counting as three upper-division journalism elective credits.
Cost is $3,344 excluding tuition and includes round-trip airfare, bus transfers, accommodations, guide and entrance fees and all meals. In addition, there will be a non-refundable $95 enrollment fee.
Payment amounts and dates are pending. Participants will travel to London, England and Paris, France from May 16 – 22, 2012 and study the journalism craft against the backdrop of international influence.
“Touring as journalism students, they will explore, record, report and photograph eye-witnessed events and places, as well as visit world-renowned news, magazines and multimedia institutions,” said Vanessa Joyner, senior lecturer in journalism, who serves as co-coordinator.
Sites include Big Ben, House of Parliament, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, as well as Versailles and the Louvre.
Space is limited, and scholarship and financial aid funds are available.
