Most IU programs do not offer coursework in Journalism; however, there are a few IU options and limited non-IU options that would allow students to take coursework in Journalism.

All JOUR students are recommended to work with their advisor to verify that credit from a study abroad program can be applied toward their JOUR degree requirements. Typically, JOUR requires all major requirements to be taken at IUB but students can petition for JOUR coursework taken abroad to fulfill major electives.

Programs for U.S.-based Students taught in English or other Languages

We offer a number of programs that provide a limited selection of area studies courses that are taught exclusively for Americans. Generally one language class is required for programs that operate in a country where English is not the native language. Some of the programs offer classes only in the host country's language. Coursework taken on the programs would fulfill general education, elective, and possibly major or minor requirements.

In an increasingly competitive global economy, the international dimension of education is becoming more and more important. Indeed, it is a matter of practical necessity: we have to provide it as a part of a good education, and students increasingly demand it."
