You need to "SEE IT, LIVE IT, TELL IT" . . .  to get the experience of a lifetime!

Multimedia Maymester in Munich and Berlin

Be one of the students who will spend May learning to create multimedia projects in Munich and Berlin, Germany (two weeks in the country). There are no tourist buses for us because the class will be conducted on the streets as you discover hidden sites that very few tourists experience!

This is a hands-on course. You will work in teams to create multimedia stories/projects involving words, video, photography, data visualization, design and just about anything else you can dream up. If this is not enough, the trip includes several surprise excursions to sample the country’s culture. Be part of one of the longest and most successful study abroad trips at the University of South Carolina ... come join us for the experience of a lifetime.
