Our Destinations

Choose from among several desirable locations and pick up practical, hands-on skills while learning from award winning professional instructors.

University of Jamestown

Students will sign up for credit from our partner university, Jamestown University in North Dakota. Credits are transferable and may be accepted for journalism elective credit by your college or university.

Study Abroad with ieiMedia

The Institute for Education in International Media has been taking students abroad since 2001. Our programs focus on media production (writing, photography, video) where students produce portfolio material for multimedia websites and/or magazines.

More Locations

We offer a wide range of locations. The focus of our work is to achieve authentic exchanges with peoples in other cultures and excellence in writing. We don’t do tourism.

Transferable credits for all our courses come through our fully accredited academic partners at each program site or through the University of Jamestown at any of our programs.
