To give students an overview of the courses, travel arrangements and costs, The Media School will host an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 4 in Franklin Hall 310. The meeting will cover the application process and deadlines, and the financial requirements in addition to usual costs.

Professors will talk about their courses in detail, and audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions. The courses being offered in in spring 2019 are:

  • From London to Paris: In the Footsteps of Ernie Pyle, which introduces students to the work of influential journalists during World War II, with special emphasis on Indiana native Ernie Pyle. The class travels to England and France during spring break.
  • Reporting War and Peace in Okinawa, which is a reporting mission to the Japanese island. The class travels to Okinawa, Japan, during spring break.
  • International Game Design Practices, which gives students the opportunity to take their games to Japanese game studios to be critiqued, playtested and reviewed, and to pitch their games to a panel of industry veterans. The class travels to Tokyo, Japan, during spring break.

To enroll in the courses, students must first apply to be admitted. The info session will cover application instructions.
