Students will focus on understanding London, its history, and its many cultural sites and cultural attractions. They will see first-hand how London as a seat of European commerce and capital of the largest empire ever on earth made it the logical place for development of newspapers, magazines, radio/television and other major media forms, including many of today's digital forms of communication. They will also explore writing and producing multimedia travel stories, blogs and photo/video essays about the various cultural sites and attractions they visit in and around London.
