In addition to the opportunities for international studies provided by SU Abroad, Newhouse students have access to special programs through industry partners that give them a more global experience in their chosen field of study, including the Bollywood Internship which allows student filmmakers to study in India; the Dubai Internship, with a focus on advertising and public relations; and the NBC Olympics internship, where students with an interest in sports production travel the world to work on the Olympic games.

Syracuse University joins with our West Coast “community of experts” to offer students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn the entertainment business from the inside. The Los Angeles Semester is open to SU juniors and seniors, many of whom are Newhouse television, radio and film students.

What is it really like to be a student at the Newhouse School? The Newhouse Ambassadors can give you the inside scoop.

The Newhouse Ambassadors group was established in 2001 with the purpose of positioning current Newhouse undergraduate students as models of possibility for prospective students, especially those who are members of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups. Since 2001 the Newhouse Ambassadors have become a key component in the undergraduate recruitment process as Newhouse continues to draw more and more students from a diverse array of backgrounds.

Today, Newhouse Ambassadors represent all eight undergraduate majors available at Newhouse and are well-known leaders in student-run media organizations and across campus at large. As shining examples of just how rich the Newhouse experience can be, ambassadors interact with prospective students and their families at every stage of the college selection process. They are excellent resources for information regarding a range of topics from studying abroad and landing a big internship, to getting involved in student organizations and balancing a dual major.
