Where can I study photography or journalism this summer?

Help me find an amazing summer program in documentary photography, digital storytelling, radio production, creative writing or journalism!

I am in my late twenties and I have an liberal arts degree from a top-10 university. I just found out about the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies and it looks incredible. I have the entire summer free, and I would like to pursue some kind of graduate-level studies in documentary photography or journalism. I would consider programs abroad.

Where should I look for self-contained summer programs along these lines? I am specifically seeking high-quality, rigorous programs that are NOT geared toward undergraduates. Ideas?

Wait, what? Isn't what your looking for right there in your question? I thought Salt did summer programs.

Yeah, CDS has programs for a wide variety of folks - both in grad school and those with more life experience.

BarefootWorkshops.org might be less advanced than you, but I thought I'd share the link just in case, and for others.

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I contacted Salt. They do not have anything in the summer, but they recommend Duke for summer programs.
