Gen Next Education is pleased to present a one-of-a-kind international practicum in India for Journalism students. This program is open to Journalism students (sophomore standing or above) at any US college or university.

The primary objective for the program would be to train young student journalists from US campuses in the nuances of being an international correspondent. By equipping the students with a breadth of knowledge on a country like India and providing them with the hands-on experience of reporting and writing from a developing nation, the program contributes to building a generation of well-informed foreign correspondents with a strong grounding in practical experience and sensitivity. This training would also serve the needs of students who aspire to participate in volunteer programs/work with NGOs in the developing world.
