Gain an international perspective and pursue your passions abroad with these one-of-a-kind programs that expand both your horizons and career options. Medill’s priority is always the health and safety of our students so we may make adjustments to planned travel based on guidance from Northwestern’s Office of Global Safety and Security.

Make your mark

At Medill, we encourage you to take your educational experiences to a global level with quarter-long programs unlike any other.

Study innovative global marketing communications strategies and their practical applications in the Chinese marketplace. Explore the dynamic interchanges of modernity and tradition, economics and politics, and geography and trade in the Middle East. Or chart your own course with the help of Northwestern’s Study Abroad team.

No matter what you decide, there’s a fit for you–one that will allow you to gain valuable education and practical experience in some of the world’s most exciting media markets.
