Dear Journalism Educators,

Please share with your students: We still have two spots left in this
program. Applications will be accepted until they are filled.*

 *June 23-July 23, 2011*

Do you dream of becoming a foreign correspondent? Do you want to learn
multimedia storytelling skills? Do both this summer and have the time of
your life with the multimedia journalism program in Perpignan,
France<http://ieimedia.com/blog/the-perpignan-project>co-sponsored by
San Francisco State University and the Institute for
Education in International Media (ieiMedia) <http://ieimedia.com/>.

The program is open to English-speaking students from all colleges and
universities, as well as recent graduates. Instruction is in English (except
French classes) and students work with interpreters to report and shoot
their stories. Preference is given to journalism, media, film or mass
communication majors and students with experience on a college or
professional publication.
Students spend four weeks studying international reporting, blogging,
multimedia storytelling and videojournalism -- as well as French language
and culture -- and report on the community of Perpignan, a charming Catalan
city near the Spanish border. They then create a multimedia website
aboutthe city (see last year's project
here <http://inperpignan.net/>).

*About Perpignan*

in the sunny Languedoc region of southwestern France, 8 miles west of
the Mediterranean and 19 miles north of the Spanish border, within sight of
the Pyrénées. The city, which passed back and forth between French and
Spanish rule over the centuries, features a charming, pedestrian-friendly
historic quarter; a daily market; several arts festivals in the summer; and
lively night life. Watch the fireworks shot over a 14th century fortress on
the 14th of July (Bastille Day). Try escargots and other regional
specialties at the local tapas bars and sip coffee at the sidewalk cafes.
Lovely Mediterranean beach towns like Collioure and Argelès-sur-Mer are just
a short bus or train ride away.
