Deadlines approaching for 2016 Grady College Study Abroad and Field Study programs

Grady College prides itself in offering one-of-a-kind opportunities that not only enrich students’ lives but also set them apart in their fields.  Global study programs in China, Croatia, France and Prague and domestic field studies in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York City and Washington, D.C., strengthen students’ portfolios and provide them with a critical understanding of the global scope of Journalism and Mass Communication.
“Study abroad gives students the opportunity to stretch outside the boundaries of what feels comfortable to them… they do things that they didn’t even know were possible,” said Kelly Meyer, Distance Learning Coordinator at Grady College.  “It sets the tone for them to keep taking big steps all the way through [their careers].”
CannesFilm2015.1Completed applications for the following international Grady programs are due by Friday, Jan. 15, 2016:
•   Travel Writing Journalism in Prague or Croatia
Meyer will be on hand at the UGA Spring Education Abroad Fair on Jan. 20, 2016, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Tate Student Center, where she will accept applications for wait lists.
