Program Detail - Media and Society in Germany

Media and Society in Germany

Students will spend four weeks in Germany and will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of contemporary German society and current issues such as European unity, changing demographics and immigration. The program focuses on two major institutions in Germany: the Christian church and the media. Students also have a chance to acquire or solidify digital storytelling skills in a cross-cultural and transnational setting. Participants have the opportunity to examine differences and similarities between the mass media systems of Germany and their home country, and to enhance critical thinking about significant issues related to international communication. German language skills and media production skills are NOT a prerequisite for participation.
