Faculty from the Department of Journalism and Media Studies have developed exciting, short-term study abroad courses that help our majors meet their degree requirements while gaining international experience in global journalism and media systems. At least one or two JMS study abroad courses are offered each year, and each course confers at least 3 credits.

Journalism and Media Studies majors receive priority consideration for participation, although students from other majors may apply and be accepted, if space permits. Declared journalism majors receive a partial subsidy from the Department of Journalism and Media Studies to help make the courses affordable.

JMS courses abroad fulfill requirements for the Global Media Specialization, an exciting 3-course concentration open to all Journalism and Media Studies majors. Students who successfully complete this specialization will have that information noted on their degree.
