Learn Travel Journalism This Summer in Italy & Croatia

Deadline to Apply Feb 15

Perched on a hilltop in the un-touristed Marche region of central Italy, Urbino is both an ancient birthplace of the Renaissance and the contemporary home for a lively university. It is the perfect place to find and tell stories about colorful characters, artistic treasures, rich history, world-class wine and cuisine, and off-the-beaten-path destinations. Students preferring to work in video and other formats may participate in our parallel Urbino course in Multimedia Journalism. The finished work of both multimedia and magazine programs is published on our Urbino Project website. The Urbino program runs from May 27 June 24.

The seaside city of Split, Croatia, where students will study travel journalism. Our Croatia Travel Journalism Program follows immediately, from June 25 to July 9. Croatia was once one of Europe's best-kept secrets but thanks in part to Emmy award-winning travel journalist Ashley Colburn, who will teach in this program, the secret is out. Spectacular coastlines, beaches, marinas, walled cities, and more than a thousand coastal islands are emerging as travel hot spots.
