Registrar description

This seminar combines classroom work with field reporting, placing students on the front lines of history in Greece, where they will learn and employ critical thinking skills and best practices used by accomplished foreign correspondents. Students will spend five weeks in Athens and in and around news-related sites on the mainland and Greek islands, learning what it takes to cover chaotic world events. While producing articles, videos, and photo stories worthy of publication, students will build confidence operating in the field and gain insight into current events, including the Syrian refugee crisis and the Greek financial collapse.
