This summer, you’ll become a mobile journalist, compiling a body of work online as you develop and stretch your practical, academic and technology skills in one of Europe’s most exciting cities.  Your lectures and behind-the-scenes tours will give you an insider’s perspective of this rapidly changing industry and its stark differences from American journalism.
