The Murrow Backpack Journalism ProgramThe Murrow Backpack Journalism Program 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 Nepal, Greece, Galapagos Islands, Guatemala, Costa Rica, China, Sri Lanka and others.
Students 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 for summer 2017 are now closed. Watch this space for future opportunities.
2016 Backpack Journalism trips took Murrow College students to Europe, Asia and Central America. Check out these video and blog highlights below.
