Colleagues,

Please share with your students.*

*Learn  multimedia journalism in Italy or France this summer!
*

Do you dream about being a foreign correspondent?  Would you like to learn "
backpack" (multimedia) journalism skills in Europe for college credit? San
Francisco State University
<http://www.cel.sfsu.edu/studyabroad/destinations.cfm>and
the Institute for Education in International Media <http://ieimedia.com/> (
www.ieimedia.com), are co-sponsoring 4-week intensive summer sessions in
Italy and France in the summer of 2010.

The programs are open to college students and recent graduates from all
schools.

    * *Urbino, Italy* (June 3-July 2, 2010) This picturesque Renaissance
hill town is the capital of the Marche region, a beautiful but
little-touristed region of Central Italy. The city's impressive Ducal Palace
houses one of the most important collections of Renaissance paintings in the
world. Students study digital video, photography, blogging and reporting (as
well as intercultural communication and Italian language) and produce an
online documentary about the town (see last year’s project at
http://inurbino.net). Students will live and dine (most meals included) in a
University of Urbino<http://www.uniurb.it/it/portale/index.php?mist_id=0&lang=IT&tipo=IST&page=0>dormitory.

    * *Perpignan, France* (June 24-July 23, 2010) Perpignan lies in the
Languedoc region of southwestern France, 8 miles west of the Mediterranean
Sea and 19 miles north of the Spanish border, within sight of the Pyrenees.
The city features a charming, pedestrian-friendly historic quarter, a daily
market and lively night life. Many attractions in France and Spain are only
a short train ride away. Students will share studios in a modern
apartment-hotel and take French and multimedia classes at the
ALFMED<http://uk.alfmed.com/>language school in the heart of the old
city. This program puts a particular
emphasis on video storytelling; students will produce an online video
gallery about the city.


Students can earn 3 transferable units of upper-division undergraduate
credit through the San Francisco State University College of Extended
Learning or study without credit for a $250 discount.*

Program cost*: $4,900 plus airfare
*Early-bird rate *(for students who apply by Jan. 15, 2010): $4,700
