Student Trips

Media in the real world

Point Park University understands that learning isn't only done in the classroom — that's why the School of Communication offers opportunities for its students to experience the world of communication.

Each spring, students enrolled in the International Media course research the media and culture of a selected foreign country.

In May, the class culminates in a trip to the chosen country, where undergraduate and graduate students examine the country's print journalism, digital media, broadcasting, advertising, public relations, photography and photojournalism professions and document their experiences through blogs and interactive websites.

Past trips have included:

Students of all majors in the School of Communication will find opportunities to meet with professionals and tour facilities in their area of study.

The fall 2014 trip included visits to the BBC, the Newseum, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and more.
