The Department of Strategic Communication has historically offered 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.
Because TCU suspended all study abroad indefinitely due to COVID-19, the Department of Strategic Communication does not have a trip abroad planned for Summer 2021. You may contact the Center for International Studies at studyabroad.tcu.edu for opportunities as they become available in accordance with the university’s COVID-19 safety protocols.
