Course Description:

As an online advanced composition course with a travel writing theme, in this course, students will explore the field of contemporary travel writing through the study of traditional travel essays, travel blogs, and new media publications including vlogs (video blogs), podcasts, social media, photo collage slide shows and more. Along with publishing a travel blog, students will develop a capstone multimedia project that will incorporate podcasting or video. Throughout the course, students will learn to identify various niches in travel writing and will work to develop their own niche. We’ll survey a variety of travel niches in class: they help fulfill, what Conde Nast Traveler says travelers are looking for “authenticity, connection, and most important, the chance to help the place that gives us pleasure.”

This course is targeted, in particular, to students on summer study abroad trips.
