Deadline to apply for summer programs: 5pm Thursday, March 1. Do your research if you don't know where you want to go. Below are some links to sites about our summer destinations. But don't limit yourself to these, of course. The internet is a miraculous source of information...

Germany (Leipzig) Summer Program – If you participate in this program you'll take both German language and journalism courses. Here's a New York Times article to get you started on your research. Check out this YouTube video, as well.
Seoul, South Korea International Media Conference – This summer you could attend an international conference on multimedia journalism and also explore Seoul. Time has a good list of things to see and do there. You can also check out this New York Times article.
Florence, Italy Summer Arts Journalism Program – Where better to study arts journalism than in Florence? You'll take classes and excursions, with mandatory exploration time, of course. This blog has a great set of pictures and things to see in Florence. WikiTravel is also a good resource.
Brussels at night
Brussels Internship Program – Spend this summer working as a journalist in the capital of Europe! Before you leap in, check out this New York Times piece on Brussels. You can also check out the Lonely Planet's site on Brussels.
Argentina (Buenos Aires) Internship Program – Delicious beef, tango in the streets and breathtaking mountains: that – and much more – is Argentina. So read up! This site has good information. You could also read this student's account of her time in Buenos Aires.
United Kingdom (London) Internship Program (not offered in the Fall semester) – In London you'll have the opportunity to examine the British media system, take field trips, and more. Read all about London on roughguides.com. Also, check out Travel and Leisure's comprehensive guide.
Washington D.C. Internship Program – Not exactly abroad, but still a fantastic destination. Time has a great list of the top ten things to see, as does About.com. You probably already know at least some of the things you'll want to see, but you'll still find things that will surprise you.
Soon as you're done deciding, get busy! Applications are due by 5pm on Thursday, March 1. Can't wait to see 'em! Good luck!
