Associate Dean in Journalism Projection promotes the Study Abroad UMH program at prestigious universities in New York

Miguel Carvajal during his visit to the United States.

Associate Professor of Journalism and Associate Dean in Journalism Projection at the UMH, Miguel Carvajal, visited prestigious universities in New York last week. During his stay there, he presented the Mediterranean Cultural Studies Study Abroad UMH program to strengthen the UMH presence in the USA. He also met with representatives from American institutions to establish exchange agreements for the UMH undergraduate programs of Journalism and Audiovisual Communication in addition to the Master’s in Innovation in Journalism.

Within the framework of the UMH DESTINO Program for Faculty & Research Personnel, professor Carvajal entered into an exchange agreement with Pace University in order to expand the curricular offer for UMH students. The journalism and film programs at that US university are characterized by a practical work methodology that include cutting-edge courses on media innovation, drone journalism, documentary production, and journalism in social networks. Among the forms of collaboration, the agreement being formulated is contemplating semester-long exchanges, a specific training program for American students in Elche, and collaboration between the faculty at both centers.

During his stay in New York, professor Carvajal had the opportunity to analyze the Entrepreneurial Journalism program at the City University of New York, a pioneer in the field, which is coordinated by Director of Education for the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, Jeremy Caplan. Furthermore, Dr. Carvajal met with Bozena I. Mierzejewska, Assistant Professor in Communications and Media Management at Fordham University.

As for the UMH Master’s in Innovation in Journalism, Miguel Carvajal, who is also the program’s coordinator, set up the first global network of university faculty of entrepreneurship and innovation in journalism. Among its members are professors from CUNY, Pace University, and Fordham University, all located in New York City. Moreover, more than twenty academics from Spanish and European universities also comprise part of this work group.

UMH ACQUIRES A TORDESILLAS DOCTORAL COLLEGE

The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), which last year joined the Tordesillas Group network of academic cooperation (comprised of academic entities from Brazil, Portugal, and Spain), has gained approval by the Coordination Committee of said entity for the Tordesillas Doctoral College (TDC) of Public Health and History of Science. Participating in this new doctoral college, coordinated by the UMH, will be the universities of Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Porto (Portugal), and it has been endowed with 18,000 € for a period of two years.

The Tordesillas Group has the mission of advancing, through the founding of these colleges, academic and scientific collaboration between research groups or departments of the institutions that are network members, as well as facilitating student and faculty mobility. The creation of this TDC will undoubtedly increase the mobility and internationalization of our doctoral program, parameters that are lately gaining influence in national regulation and accreditation of graduate education.

UMH PARTICIPATES IN A PROJECT TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

Students and graduates from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) are participating in the Erasmus+ project Travel Transformation, whose objective is to improve communication capabilities on raising awareness about climate change and sustainability. The project participants included young people from various fields of knowledge from six countries, including Chile, Mexico, Ecuador, Greece, Germany, and Spain.

During the final two weeks of August, the group stayed in the small town of Karnitz, Germany, a locale that offers a summer school every year that addresses sustainability and shows how to publicize it. For this, the participants took part in different workshops on spots, animation, online TV, radio, painting, and transmedia. Each workshop concluded with at least one product focused on raising awareness about climate change.

These products will be made available on a web platform, and the participants will attend a second meeting in Chile in January 2018. The UMH also participated in a project about raising awareness on climate change last year under the alias of C4CC: Capacities for Climate Change. The current activity is part of Erasmus+ KA2.
