A Four-Year Overview

Media Fellows By-The-Numbers



The first-year seminar lays a philosophical base for media study and an introduction to media in their various forms (print, radio, TV, video, advertising, public relations, etc.).


Throughout the sophomore year, Media Fellows attend a luncheon discussion series with on-campus faculty and professionals while taking courses that compliment their study of the media.


During the junior year, Media Fellows take part in a semester-long, full-credit professional internship in a media setting such as a television network, radio station, newspaper bureau, public relations office or entertainment program.  


In the senior year, Media Fellows take part in a capstone seminar that will offer an opportunity for in-depth research and final research projects.

Additional Requirements

Additional course requirements include an independent reading course while students are on their internship and two full-credit courses (one emphasizing the process side of media, the other analytical, see below) by their senior year.  Media Fellows have three semesters to achieve and maintain a 3.1 grade point average to remain in good academic standing in the program, and need a minimum of a 3.2 gpa to graduate as a member of the program.  Throughout the four years, Media Fellows students are expected to complete four semesters of work in one of the student media and to attend special lectures, luncheons, and seminars sponsored by the Media Fellows program and the  Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media
