Round Earth Media

Yes, they can!

August 24, 2018


It started in April 2012, with this story by a student reporter and photographer, published in The New York Times.   Since then, students in Morocco have been responsible for some of the most important — and consistent — reporting from this neglected region.  Proof positive that journalism students can produce international reporting at the highest levels of the profession.  

Students arrive soon for the fall semester on our journalism programs in Morocco andSouth Africa,  a partnership with SIT Study Abroad.  Round Earth is unique in training the next generation of global journalists while placing their stories and reaching broad audiences.  Many of our students have gone on to work at leading media outlets from theNew York Times to NPR.  It is your support that makes this possible.  

I thought you might be interested in this amazing list of student stories from Morocco.  I’ll be off the grid next week, enjoying the Labor Day holiday in the U.S. and the last precious days of summer.  Wishing the same for all of you!

With warmest regards,
