German-American Media Program
The German-American Media Program fulfills three functions: First, it contributes to the German-American friendship. Second, it allows journalism instructors to exchange educational questions and challenges in university-level journalism. And third, it sharpens the critical awareness of young journalists by dealing with sensitive topics such as freedom of the press and human rights.
In the United States, the IMC cooperates with two leading journalism schools: the Medill School of Journalism at the Northwestern University in Chicago and the Dart Center for Trauma and Journalism at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York City. The IMC staff also maintains close contact with US institutions in terms of the qualification of management of international media programs and journalism education. They continually compares notes with colleagues in the USA. This exchange of information includes bilateral discussions as well as lectures at symposia, and fellowship programs.
Fellowships are announced periodically with a strong focus on current topics such as the memories of Holocaust survivors from Germany or refugees in American and German cities.
