I found this link on Romensko’s blog: NU still negotiating to open campus in Qatar – Campus.
There are some interesting changes underway at my alma mater. I happen like the idea of expanding the journalism program to the Middle East. The students would gain so much insight and experience in that part of the world — more so than reading about it in the Times or watching reports on CNN.
“O’Keefe confirmed that the contract has not been signed, and wrote that NU is still in discussions with the Qatar Foundation but more “definite news” might be available in October.
If a contract is signed, NU will open a school in Education City, a complex of campuses located in Doha, the capital of Qatar.” – from Daily Northwestern
I enjoyed taking advantage of our global journalism program at Medill. It was hard work but it gave me the chance to produce news and features for an international wire service in London. Mark and I are grateful for our European adventure.
