The Media School will welcome its first cohort of Media Scholars in fall 2018.
The top 16 incoming media and game design students will be invited to join the inaugural class and receive enhanced opportunities during their undergraduate studies.
These students will form the inaugural class of Media Scholars and will have the opportunity to take honors courses in The Media School, receive subsidies for international travel courses and engage with media professionals on campus and further afield to develop their professional skills and perspectives during their degree program.
About the students:
Media Scholars will be directly admitted to either the Bachelor of Arts in Media or Bachelor of Science in Game Design degree program and will be recognized as Media School majors as soon as they set foot on campus. Media Scholars are eligible to enroll in up to six special honors courses in media studies, including core degree courses and a capstone project during their senior year.
About the program:
Media Scholars will travel as a group to places as near as New York to visit media organizations and network with alumni, and as far away as Los Angeles and London, England, to spend a summer working in professional internships.
Media Scholars will also have the opportunity to meet the many media professionals who visit the school during the academic year, including participants in the school’s Speaker Series. Previous visitors have included ESPN’s Sage Steele, NPR’s Eric Deggans and Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad.
