Program Overview

A Holocaust Journey_flyer.pdf

Read local coverage of the project here!

This isn't just a trip abroad; This is an opportunity to create a multimedia/virtual reality project to fight hatred and bigotry. 

This semester-long class will meet once a week, taking a trip midway to Poland and Germany to shoot an immersive educational tool using the story of a Holocaust survivor to apply to acts of bigotry today. The students will work alongside professionals who will shoot in video, drone and virtual reality at actual locations that were part of the survivor's journey such as Auschwitz (Poland) and the Buchenwald Memorial (Germany). Visits to scenic and tourist attractions will also be included.

This program has won a grant that will cover the majority of student costs and is seeking a cross-disciplinary mix of students including Electronic Media, History, Journalism, Political Science, Judaic Studies, Psychology, Writing and Photography. The class will count as an elective to most degrees. Upon completion, the project will be viewable at the Union Terminal Museum Center, in the Holocaust & Humanity Museum which opened in January 2019.

Academic Program and Course Information

All students will be required to enroll in EMED 4030: Media Topics section 002 for the fall 2019 term for 3 credits (undergraduate students). Graduate students who can’t enroll in this class can choose graduate level EMED 7055 section 001 for 3 credits for fall 2019 term.

These courses gear students to produce a project hands on. We will meet for an hour once a week before our trip and upon our return to reflect on what we witnessed. The class will receive a free 95-page book which will be required reading before the trip. Students will team to produce limited projects relevant to our journey upon our return.

Tuition and fees are assessed based on total enrolled hours for a term. This includes the hours associated with the study abroad class. Students who enroll for more than 18 hours for the term will be assessed additional per credit hour fees over and above the flat fees associated with being enrolled full-time (for most students full-time is 12-18 hours).
Co-op students selected to participate in this program are required to enroll in the course during the designated term, regardless of when the student may be on co-op.  If the course is during a term when the student is on co-op, tuition and fees will be charged per a student’s residency status and college, based on the part-time per credit hour rate.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, it's best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is via the US Department of State’s webpage at:

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently, and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to know and address the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose a third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).

Health and Safety Abroad

While UC International is committed to student and faculty safety while abroad, traveling UC faculty, students and staff are the individuals making decisions overseas and therefore play a key role in their own health and safety abroad. The US Department of State, Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and International SOS are excellent resources for country specific information.

UC partners with International SOS, a company that provides medical and security advice. UC's member ID is 11BCAS000010.

UC students, faculty and staff can utilize International SOS in the following ways:

  • Sign up to receive email alerts for medical and security information, customizable to various locations abroad.

  • Read about travel health information with medical advice, food and water safety and cultural tips.

  • Explore travel security with personal safety tips and travel risk ratings for locations abroad.

UC faculty, students and staff traveling abroad should register their travel through the US Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency.

All UC students participating in a University of Cincinnati sanctioned or funded international travel program are required to purchase and maintain insurance while abroad. UC International partners with CISI to provide insurance for UC students.
