Whether it's interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, most Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.

With some planning, media and society majors can travel abroad and still graduate on time. While the Center for Global Education offers abroad programs on six continents, faculty from the media and society program sponsor programs in England, Wales and Italy.

London, England

As part of the London, England program, students will intern with a local business, agency or organization. Through this experience and related coursework students will gain an understanding of historical London as well as the city's evolution as a modern, multicultural city.

Norwich, England

In the Norwich, England program, students have the opportunity to study at the University of East Anglia (UEA), taking classes and living alongside their British and international classmates, for a full cultural immersion experience.

Carmarthen, Wales

As part of the Wales program, students will live and take classes alongside Welsh and international classmates. To facilitate engagement with the local community, all students must participate in an academic or extracurricular immersion experience; this may inclue a credit-bearing internship, a school practicum, or a service-learning project.

Rome, Italy

In the Italy program, students utilize the entire city of Rome as a classroom or studio. The program is designed to immerse students fully in the experience of being in Rome, but several significant excursions will provide students with a wider perspective on the history and culture of daily life in Italy.



At HWS, students have the freedom to study at any of our Global Education destinations.

The featured abroad programs are recommended by the Media and Society program based on content of the curricula.
