Journalism, Cinematic Arts, and Media Exploration Pre-Orientation Program

Journalism, Cinematic Arts, & Media Exploration Pre-Orientation Program

The Journalism, Cinematic Arts, and Media Pre-Orientation Immersion Program is a 3-day experience led by Career Advancement’s UChicago Careers in Journalism, Arts, and Media (UCIJAM) program for up to 20 incoming first-year students. The program will provide an overview of the current media, entertainment, and storytelling landscape through visits to film studios, television networks, and broadcast outlets. As part of the experience students will get a chance to meet other incoming students with interests in these fields, meet industry leaders and UChicago alumni, build community, and soak up the Hollywood sunshine!!

Journalism, arts and media converge and flourish at the University of Chicago. Through the University of Chicago's strong liberal arts curriculum, and the new Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, students pursue multiple interdisciplinary areas, even as they become experts in specific areas of interest. As part of Career Advancement, UChicago Careers in Journalism, Arts, and Media (UCIJAM) provides essential professional development opportunities to help students launch successful careers in these fields. Internships, fellowships, employment opportunities, and alumni networks take UChicago students across the country and around the globe, allowing them to grow outside the classroom, develop as professionals, and pursue opportunities in a wide variety of disciplines. UCIJAM also sponsors apprenticeships that allow students to collaborate with local mentors on projects that advance their creative and professional goals.
