During this program you will embed yourself in a different environment to learn how specific groups/teams use social media to engage audiences and, when applicable, how they strategize and measure social media performance.

Students will be in Japan from July 10 – July 20, however there may be coursework prior to departure. Expect to dedicate time to the program from June 28 to July 30, 2018.

Program Fee: $5,575

The intern will learn to serve as a local host for KFSK’s Morning Edition from 5:30-8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

KFSK is located in Petersburg, on an island in Southeast Alaska. It’s primarily a commercial fishing town and has about 3,000 residents. We are in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, one of the most beautiful places on earth. We are surrounded by mountains, glaciers, water, and wildlife.
