Program Description:

Communication Media Spain
Program Description

There is an increasing demand for professional communicators who possess the knowledge and experience to develop and implement an integrated communications program and multimedia storytelling content at the international level in corporate, government, and nonprofit organizations. During our study abroad program students will visit media companies in Madrid and Seville and they will learn to develop an integrated communications plan. Using public relations, advertising, design, journalism and electronic media skills, students will help create campaigns and multimedia content about local entities in Seville. Our courses will focus on the importance of multidisciplinary teams applying strategic communications principles and storytelling techniques to the specific needs of non-profit clients and small businesses for an American or European audience. We will emphasize differences and similarities between American and European media systems and strategic communication practices.

Location Description

Class instruction begins in Miami for few meetings and then continues in Seville. Once in Spain, we first meet in Madrid and then go on to visit Granada and Cordoba before arriving in Seville, where the majority of class and living will take place. There are also optional trips to Morocco or Portugal during the free weekend.

Housing

Students will share rooms in modest apartments with kitchen and washing facilities in the centrally located Santa Cruz neighborhood. It is five minutes walking distance from the historic Seville City Hall, the Giralda, and the Seville Cathedral, which is the largest Catholic cathedral in the world after St. Peter's in Rome. Classes are easily accessible by bus or a 15 minute walk.
