The Department of Strategic Communication has multiple and expanding study abroad options that engage students’ sense of adventure to develop understanding of international contexts of strategic communication and media. Such experience is important for students’ success as part of a global community and to employers. Through a combination of field trips and exploration, guest speakers, class discussion, and hands-on exercises, these classes engage and develop students’ cultural, critical and ethical understanding of strategic communication, media, and organizations in today’s global environment. Programs include site visits to and opportunities to work with advertising and public relations agencies, offices of public communication, non-profits, businesses, media industry centers, and cultural and commercial venues.
Currently the STCO major is offering programs in Central America, Europe, and the UK. For more information on study abroad opportunities during Summer 2016, visit the TCU Study Abroad Office Summer Programs page.
