The Murrow Backpack Journalism ProjectThe Murrow Backpack Journalism Project provides a unique opportunity for the most accomplished students in the college to travel abroad and work in an international environment. Funded by generous alumni and donors, backpack journalism trips enable us to send students (in teams of two) to destinations such as the Galapagos Islands, Guatemala, Costa Rica, China, Sri Lanka and others.
Students are equipped with the latest video, audio and web technology produce multimedia content for blog posts from abroad and final projects. Backpack Journalism students experience the challenges and benefits of international travel, may have their work published by professional media and enrich their academic and professional lives.
Applications being accepted this fall
