Kosovo - A Place with a Story to Tell

KosovoThe Kosovo Summer Program gives students the opportunity to combine classroom studies in the morning with experiential learning in afternoon internships. During the six weeks, students really get to know the people of Kosovo, a youthful country where half the population is 25 or younger. 

Students earn 8 credits and all classes are in English. The courses are “JRN 350 The Role of Newsmedia in a Democracy ” (JRN 350) and the “Peacebuilding in the Balkans” course (ITS 365).  Depending on their goals and interests, students intern as reporters at a respected online news magazine, or work at non-profit organizations that focus on human rights, health, environment, or building democracy.

Group travel includes daytrips to nearby historic cities and a 4-day trip to Dubrovnik, on the famous Croatia coast. Students may travel independently on their 3-day weekends.

Some changes for this year include an earlier and shorter workshop to accommodate busy students' summers, local homestays with Kosovar families to deepen student’s intercultural experience, and greater access to rewarding internship experiences. The 12th Kosovo Summer Workshop in Prishtina, Kosovo will be from May 26-July 6, 2019.

Dr. Carl Dahlman (GIC/ITS) and Dr. Richard Campbell will be teaching the courses this year and Dr. Dahlman will be directing the workshop. For more information, email Dahlman or visit him at 124 MacMillan Hall. Check for information sessions to come soon.
