Storytelling in America's Parks

Study-in-America is a university-wide initiative providing immersive education in unique destinations. For the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, that meant trekking to parks across the Southwest to tell multimedia stories.

During the two-week program, the group — 13 students led by three faculty members — sought out stories, conducted interviews, created social media content, wrote feature essays and produced mini-documentaries. They also navigated the challenges and opportunities of using digital technology in remote locations like the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. Along the way, they shared behind-the-scenes views into their process.
