At Northeastern University, students have opportunities beyond campus classrooms. Sixteen student journalists, 14 undergraduates and two graduate students, arrived in Salamanca, Spain on May 6 with their instructor, School of Journalism Lecturer, Carlene Hempel. The trip is part of the university’s Dialogue of Civilization program.

According to Hempel, the student “international press corps” will report from Salamanca and Madrid on everything from the arts and politics to sports. They will attend class, pitch story ideas, write them and post their stories to individual blogs. Students will not only write stories, but they will illustrate their work with photos, video and audio clips.

You can keep track of their work by visiting the “NU Journalism Abroad 2014” blog. There you’ll find students’ individual blogs.

This is the third dialogue program let by the School of Journalism.
