Open to all students with an interest in photography who have completed at least one year of full-time university study. May be of particular interest to avid amateurs or those wanting to develop their photography skills.
In partnership with La Trobe University, GlobaLinks Learning Abroad offers a fascinating and rare opportunity to visit and photograph one of the most significant areas of Australia --the Outback. During this three-week course, you will see a part of the country rarely visited by students, tourists, and even Australians themselves, while exploring a regional Australian outback landscape through photography. Workshops and a five-day field trip provide the platform for exploration of imagery based on the region's ancient landscape and sociological layering created by pre- and post-colonial influences. A local Aboriginal guide will accompany the field trip to help transition students into the area's culture. Participants exhibit their work in a regional art gallery at the conclusion of the program. All photographic equipment is provided; however, students are welcome to bring their own cameras. Workshops are led by photography faculty from La Trobe University's School of Visual Arts.
Often referred to as the "Mediterranean of the Outback", Mildura is known for its citrus groves, vineyards, tree-lined streets, and endless sunshine. The course will also spend two days in Melbourne, Australia exploring the sites of the city and includes an Australian football (footy) match.
Assessment for this course is based on the submission of four assignments at the conclusion of the program: 1) daily travel journal; 2) black and white print portfolio; 3) color print portfolio; and 4) a web page documenting your experience of the program.
GlobaLinks Learning Abroad programs are created with individual student's goals in mind. Our programs are built around a unique Discovery Model which is delivered by our amazing staff, both in the U.S. and overseas. Our Discovery Model provides every student with an individualized experience through discovery in 5 key areas: personal, academic, cultural, social, and professional. Our North American staff counsels each student through the application and enrollment process, and our on-site Resident Coordinators set up a calendar of activities for students related to each area of discovery. These activities are more than just tourist excursions, and include opportunities like networking events, local festivals, gallery openings, and other similar events that you can't find in a travel book.
GlobaLinks Learning Abroad programs in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji include everything you would expect in a study abroad program: guaranteed housing, 24-hour in-country support, an in-country multi-day orientation program, comprehensive pre-departure services, excursions, and discovery activities to make the most out of each student's experience. Students of all majors are welcome to apply and scholarships are available.
