The Cagli Project is a deep cultural immersion that begins in Rome and moves into the beautiful Italian medieval “city” of Cagli in the Apennine Mountains and the Renaissance cities of Urbino and Gubbio. Students will be on the ancient Via Flaminia from Rome to the Adriatic Sea, where this unique opportunity will provide the tools to acquire practical language and transmedia skills while using proven cultural immersion techniques.

The ability to assimilate quickly and hone in on another culture’s values are indispensable tools for anyone preparing for a career in a world where globalization and multiculturalism are becoming increasingly important. At the micro level, students will learn how to read another culture on their own terms. At the macro level, students will be ready to become facilitators in the intercultural dialogue that the modern world requires. Journalism students will learn a “backpack style of journalism being a journalist on-the-go, and using a documentary.
