Anglo-American University students have a new and unique exchange opportunity for this coming winter. The exchange is funded through the Prague Freedom Foundation and comes after ten Kent State, College of Communication and Information, students’ two-week exchange to AAU this past August, studying Modern Media and Democracy-Getting the Prague Perspective.
The three credit course instructed by Iva Roze-Skochova, will consist of classes in Prague to prepare for the exchange taking place January 6-17, Mon-Fri, 9:00-13:00. Following the time in Prague, students will attend a program at Kent State University, Ohio. Iva Skochova says of the program,
“This is a unique opportunity for journalism students to develop their foreign reporting skills. It’s always a good idea to take writers out of their “natural” environment because they get to see things with a fresh pair of eyes. It’s easier to find unique stories that way.”
The program will focus on reporting in the U.S. as a foreigner, travel writing, and international reporting, also there is opportunity for interested students to shoot photos to accompany articles that will be published on a website created exclusively for this exchange. At Kent State University students will gain experience in state-of-the-art media facilities currently unavailable in Prague. The Prague Freedom Foundation will provide travel expenses and accommodation.
School of Journalism students have a priority for this program, but students from other programs are welcome to apply. Ten students will be accepted based on an application and essay to be submitted (submit to- firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 16th, with a decision by October 21st.
