JStudents head east, west

by Robert Stewart, Director

One of the great things about teaching journalism at Ohio University is seeing our students venture out beyond their comfort zone. Learning about lands and peoples beyond their immediate horizon, our students are preparing themselves for careers that span the globe.

The John R. Wilhelm Foreign Correspondence Internship program provides several students each year the chance to do an internship overseas. Eric Hornbeck is interning with globalcustodian.com in London this summer. Justin Thompson will join the banking publication this fall. You can read Eric’s blog to keep up with his UK-based internship. Meanwhile, Maria Gallucci is headed to the AP bureau in Mexico City this fall for her John R. Wilhelm internship. I’ll post more information about other Wilhelm internships as they develop in the fall.

Two journalism students receive Gilman Scholarships for study abroad

by Robert Stewart, Director

Just saw in OU’s Compass online news service that two of our students received significant scholarships to study abroad. Congrats to Alexandra Motz and Crystalyn Thomas-Davis, who will use the Gilman Scholarships for specialized language study, according to the article.

“Motz, a senior journalism major from Cincinnati, hopes that studying abroad will give her the opportunity to enter into travel reporting. She will study documentary production and photography in addition to Spanish in Costa Rica and is currently sending samples of her work to travel websites.”

Not long after she graduated in 2008, Jessica Beinecke landed a job at the Voice of America’s Mandarin language service. Within a week of starting her job as a researcher, she was invited to audition as host of a television program.

In the first two videos below, Beinecke describes studying Chinese at Ohio University, studying abroad, as well as working at the VOA’s Mandarin service.
