Program Reviews:
Jordan Marie Klein, Summer 2012 Participant
I enjoyed the fact that by doing an internship in another country I was able to get experience in my future field and also got to know many of the local people of Australia. I felt that I gained a better appreciation for the culture and people of Australia by working and alongside them.

Summer 2018 Participant
My favorite part of this program was getting to meet so new many new people and making friends, as well as the ability to immerse myself in the Australian culture.

Ashleigh Rose Lee, Summer 2013 Participant
The elements that were most rewarding were being able to apply what I have learned in my classes into real world situations. It was a great feeling knowing that I could do things on my own while outside the classroom. I also learned that there is another side to photography-the business side. It was helpful because I got to experience both creative and management work which reassured me that I want to do this as my career.
