Journalism in Ghana


Journalism in Ghana is an intensive six-week experience in immersion journalism. Students follow a rigorous schedule and actively participate in reporting, writing, photographing, or filming almost every day. Students who wish to develop their reporting pieces further after returning to the U.S. will have the opportunity to do so.
