The Europe Media Tour is part of a course offered by the Missouri School of Journalism.

Students are awarded course credit as they travel abroad, gaining global perspectives on their respective journalism disciplines. While abroad, the students and faculty toured newsrooms, advertising and public relations agencies, universities and diplomatic agencies. The 2013 team was led by Brad Best and Erica Mendez Babcock.

This blog is a collection of the students’ reflections on their study tour through the European Union. Each of them have contributed a post. We hope you’ll read them, comment and share your thoughts.



According to its website, the International Programs office was created at the Missouri School of Journalism in 1994 to manage the diverse array of international activity taking place within the school.  It offers programs for undergraduate and graduate students around the globe.  The International Programs Office seek to:

  • Provide students and faculty with international experience
