Study Away

The School of Media and Communication (SMC) offers study-abroad opportunities that allow students to see the advertising industry through an international lens. Students are immersed into local culture and take classes unique to their program. These studies are also open to qualified students from other universities and colleges in order to foster intellectual exchange.


London is a rich cultural and intellectual hub for the student of mass media and communication. Approximately 20-40 students per semester attend SMC’s London program and complete internships during the fall at professionally relevant British or American television, film, and video production houses; public relations and advertising agencies; magazines.


During this month-long summer program, students encounter the old Dublin and the new Dublin. They study how a distinctive national identity emerged from Ireland’s literature and from long-fought political revolution. They also experience a modern metropolis with an increasingly multicultural population, a sophisticated European city that is an incubator for artistic and multimedia innovation.
