If you're looking to take your university media studies tour to America then forget Hollywood, these days, New York City's where it's at. For example, where else could you wander past the locations of – Breakfast at Tiffany's, Midnight Cowboy and Mean Streets? Or get such a sense of deja-vu when you see a steaming manhole cover or watch a yellow taxi cab come to a halt right at your feet?

New York City tours for media students present an exceptional chance to gain first-hand experiences of some of the world's most iconic streets and if you're hoping to excite and motivate the next Woody Allen or Spike Lee then right here is where you do it.
For education on a more organised front museums such as the American Museum of the Moving Image present an excellent itinerary spanning the history, the archives and the technology of media in the United States.
The impact of the media on society as well as the effects of the digital age are all well-documented within the MoMI and from special screenings to curriculum-based workshops, this is an extremely worthwhile port of call for visiting media studies tours. 
If you're hoping to rummage around in the archives for a particular TV or radio broadcast then the Paley Center for Media gives you exactly what you're after and then some. With a library holding over 150,000 examples of audio-visual America, including synopsis and a special screening room, this is pretty much an all-dayer so make sure students are fully-briefed prior to their visit.
With tours of magazine and newspaper publishers, such as Harper's Bazaar and the New York Times, as well as the chance to go on a behind the scenes tour of NBC, it's easy to see why university media studies tours of New York outweigh the bright lights of Tinseltown.
The On Location Tour provides a great insight into the skills required to be behind the camera with a workshop on directing, shooting and editing. Check out the video below to find out more about the workshop >
