A meeting place of ancient and new, holy and secular, Jerusalem is a gathering spot for foreign correspondents from around the world. Get a taste of the global journalist’s life by studying with veteran Middle East correspondents; then go into the community to report your own stories.
Students will learn from and work with former Christian Science Monitor foreign correspondent Ilene Prusher, longtime NPR reporter Linda Gradstein and photojournalist Ricki Rosen, all of whom have covered Israel and the Middle East for years, and veteran journalism professor Rachele Kanigel.
The program is co-sponsored by Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It is open to English-speaking students from all majors, schools and countries. Experience working on campus or professional publications is desirable, but not required.
Students will publish stories on a multimedia website. In the past, some students have also published work with professional news outlets, including The Jerusalem Post and HuffPost.
