This unique program gives students the opportunity to meet and study with likeminded students form our partners at Liverpool John Moores University(LJMU) in the "World Capital City of Pop." Students will attend a LJMU Media Production class and complete a special project, either individually or in small groups, that will showcase their understanding of specific communication concept sand skills in their specific field of study. The research project will also showcase students' understanding of the local culture. Before the trip, students will compile a project proposal where they will outline what they will be working on or researching that will showcase or enhance their understanding of a specific communication concept or theory related to cultural and communication differences between Liverpool and New Haven. Students will have access to LJMU film equipment should their project require it. The trip includes several cultural excursions and tours in Manchester and Liverpool. There will be designated times during the trip to meet up with faculty and students to discuss cultural experiences, touch base on the status of student projects, and review relevant communication concepts.
