Real World Foreign Experiences

Adam Singh and his Foreign Reporting in Berlin classmates.

During a three-week winter session program, students like former College of Arts and Sciences Ambassador Adam Singh, transitioned from foreign tourists to international journalists as part of the Foreign Reporting in Berlin experience. They interacted with the city and its inhabitants, confronted language and cultural barriers, and experienced the stories of a city and a nation forever altered by 20th century history.

The moment students arrive in Berlin, they are asked to write about the city and the cultural differences they encounter through visits to historic sites and interviewing local residents. Students also cover cultural events, current and breaking news, and meet with freelance journalists and foreign correspondents from major American news organizations.
