Bowling Green State University prepares its students for life outside of college, but also outside of the country. Iesha Mitchell, a telecommunications major from Detroit, Mich., and Dan Lemle, a journalism public relations sequence major from Monclova, Ohio, have been admitted to the American University of Paris to pursue master of art degrees in global communications.
“Visiting the university was what really sparked my interest in attending school there,” Mitchell said.
Both Mitchell and Lemle attended an international media seminar hosted by AUP in spring 2013, a trip sponsored by the Department of Journalism and Public Relations.
“We met with AUP faculty, staff and media professionals who are based in Paris,” Lemle said.
Mitchell and Lemle have been assisting associate professor Catherine Cassara on an environmental journalism research project this semester to help prepare them for graduate studies.
They will take off for Paris in late August and complete the program within one calendar year.
