In the News

Here's what one of last year's students said about the ieiMedia experience:
"This summer changed my life not only as a journalist, but also as a world citizen."   --Indiana University junior Milana Katic

Program Focus

Ooh, La, La! Have We Got a Program for You!   

Do you want to explore the new interactive storytelling possibilities of the iPad? Would you like to do it in the South of France?

This summer in Perpignan, France, students will study multimedia storytelling and then report on the community, publishing their work in a tablet magazine and on a website. In addition, we'll have a small team of students focused on app development, publication design and graphics.  

The program is open to students and recent graduates from all schools. All majors are welcome; journalism, mass comm or publication design coursework and/or experience on a student or professional publication is desirable but not required. Learn more about our Perpignan, France, program.

B Marshal w class Journalism Resources From Our Faculty 
IeiMedia, a pioneer in journalism education, has been taking students abroad since 2002. It was founded by Andrew Ciofalo, now a professor emeritus at Loyola University Maryland.

Our projects aim to educate students in various media disciplines while at the same time inspiring them to explore a foreign culture. For each project, students produce a publication--a multimedia website, print or digital magazine or book--about the community where they live and learn. Nearly 450 students have participated in these programs.
