Using digital tools, the International Urban Storytelling program captures the people, places and traditions of a region. Under the guidance of a Klein faculty member, students will produce a multimedia research project that includes audio, photography, text and video. This program explores the city as a classroom, mobilizing students through on-site lectures, excursions and field work.

The location for the program rotates each year, providing students with an in-depth look at two international destinations: Ireland and South Africa. These destinations are ripe for comparison given their post-conflict statuses, grappling with similar challenges as they each maintain peace in their respective locales.

For the summer of 2018, students will study in the innovative technological hub of Dublin at Dublin City University. Students will have the option of complementing their studies with an internship in their field in their city of choice in Ireland.
