DAAD internXchange Summer Internship Program

Summer Internship Program in Berlin for American and Canadian Students of Journalism or Communications at the International Center for Journalism at Freie Universität Berlin
June 3–August 16, 2013:
DAAD and the Freie Universität Berlin (named in 2012 as one of the "universities of excellence" in Germany, and in 2012 one of the best 100 universities in the world) have developed a unique program to provide outstanding young journalism students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in the society, culture, values, and political attitudes in Germany. During this time of transition and change in transatlantic relations and the German-American relationship, this program will expose American students with a particular interest in Germany to its changing global political role.
The program consists of two complementary segments. The first six weeks will be spent at the International Center for Journalism of the Freie Universität Berlin, where participants will expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany and the country's current media structure and working conditions of journalists. With these theoretical building blocks in place, participants subsequently embark on an intensive five-week internship with a German newspaper, (online) magazine, TV or radio station, press or PR agency. During the academic part of the program students will take a one-week educational tour within Germany, along with young journalists from the Independent States of the former Soviet Union.
The deadline to apply is February 24, 2013.
