The program combines lectures and field visits to local news outlets. Participants will train at MSU’s new state-of-the-art interactive newsroom, learn from our award-winning faculty and visit newspapers, television, ethnic media and news radio in mid-Michigan.
All costs including round trip ticket from Chile to Michigan, lodging, and meals will be covered by MSU.
