Spring 2020: Study mobile photography in Urbino, Italy
Apply by Oct. 1
In the spring of 2020 Iowa State University will offer, for the third time, a spring semester in Urbino, Italy, in cooperation with the University of Urbino. The program is led by Greenlee School Associate Professor Deni Chamberlin.

Classes will focus on photojournalism with a focus on mobile phone image making, Renaissance art history, literature, food and culture, and Italian language. Classes will take place in the historic city center but many class sessions will also take place outside of the traditional classroom, including trips to Florence, Siena, Rome and other towns closer to Urbino.

For more firsthand info, check out our Greenlee student blog where we'll highlight Urbino student experiences throughout the month, including what it's like to study in small-town Italy and why it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Questions? Contact Deni Chamberlin or attend the Study Abroad Fair on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. The application deadline is Oct. 1, 2019 .

Reynolds Journalism Institute Student Innovation Competition
What:  The Donald W.

This year’s challenge is to create a program, tool or prototype for photo, video or audio verification.

Where:  Develop the idea from your school or university. If your team is selected as a finalist, you would come to the Missouri School of Journalism on Sat. Feb. 8 to present in front of a panel of industry judges and the public. 
When:  Students who plan to enter the competition have the next three months to build their tool, prototype or program.
Why:  1. Chance to win up to $10,000 in prize money
          2. Looks good on your resume.
          3. Your finished prototype could turn into a future business opportunity.
