Israel Program, Tips for Taking Students Abroad, & More Foreign Destinations

International Reporting in Jerusalem, Israel  

Settled more than 3,000 years ago, Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and a holy place for three of the world's major religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This meeting place between the East and West is also a major center for reporting on the Middle East, and many international news organizations maintain bureaus here.

Students will learn how to develop sources, conduct interviews and work with an interpreter, and then report on the city around them, publishing their work on a multimedia website. The course will be taught by a team of veteran journalists who have covered the Middle East for years, including longtime NPR Jerusalem correspondent Linda Gradstein and former Christian Science Monitor reporter Ilene Prusher.
