Students should submit a study away application and plan to enroll in a minimum of six in-person credits. The 2-credit online experiential learning course can count towards the in-person minimum requirement. Alternatively, students can apply for and take only the 2-credit experiential learning course, remotely, without studying away.
Many sites are also offering online courses. Online courses are open to any student who meets the course requirements with or without a study away application. We encourage you to take a look at our full list of online courses here.

Elective Reporting Topics: Reporting Africa - JOUR-UA 9204 - 4 points
Pre-requisite: JOUR-UA 101 - Journalistic Inquiry or permission of the instructor.
Students report in teams and individually, on political, economic, and social issues in Ghana.

Print and broadcast projects are both welcome. This is an intensive reporting experience. Students will be working on their projects every day.
Journalism and Society: Cultural Context of African Media - JOUR-UA 9503 - 4 points
This course will take a critical look at how the media interrelates with society by focusing on the history, content, economics and effects of the media.
The class will explore the socio-cultural and philosophical context of the media industry in general, and the practice of mass communication in Africa and Ghana in particular. This broad perspective will be examined against the background notion that the media do not function in a vacuum. Thus, students will examine how these contexts, informed by the dominant philosophies and macro-institutional practices of society, mitigate or even dictate the operations of the media. Discussions will also deal with how the mass media impact on society and affect the manner in which people experience the world around them
Online courses must be taken 100% remote synchronously.
