Global Perspectives: Media, Communication, Culture
3-week course with excursions to Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow/Auschwitz
About summer programme
Through a culturally-immersive learning framework, students in this course will explore how globalization (as process, practice, and system) intersects evolving conceptions of media, communication and culture as international phenomena.
Students from all majors are welcome, as the course is specifically designed to both link up with a wide array of disciplinary perspectives related to the subject, as well utilize student diversity regarding backgrounds and majors as a means to mutually enhance our understanding of the topics and perspectives we will engage in the course.
Utilizing directed engagements with the Czech and Central European cultural context (visiting Prague, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, Brno and Southern Moravia), students will explore the Local as a context for understanding the Global, considering how their own culture, media, and means for communication (language, technology, symbolism, etc.) frame and connect their knowledge and personal experience of the world to broader understandings of their identity and perspective in the world.

Learning outcomes: Students in this course will explore how globalization (as process, practice, and system) intersects evolving conceptions of media, communication and culture as international phenomena.
I wish I had the words to describe how much the past three weeks changed my life. Going into this program, it was just an opportunity to travel abroad and get credits at the same time, but even from the first day it became so so so much more than that. I made incredible friends and was granted the chance to learn. Whether it was in the classroom, on a tour, or simply in a pub or at dinner I never stopped learning and I am beyond grateful.
