Graduate Student Campus Visits

Campus visits give you the opportunity to talk to an admissions director, sit in on a class, meet a faculty member, and/or take a tour of our facilities. Contact Tatyana Rodriguez (for Full-time IMC), Megan Castle (For Part-time or Online IMC) or Melissa Sersland (for MSJ) so that we can set up a visit schedule for you.

Graduate Student Interviews

An interview is a great way for us to get to know you and for you to learn more about Medill as you prepare your application.

Master of Science in Journalism Applicants
For applicants planning to apply for summer and fall 2018, you can schedule an interview at any time during the application process. Sign up for one here. If you can't travel to Evanston for an interview, you can sign up for one via Skype. Medill representatives also meet and interview prospective graduate students in many cities throughout the year. Please check this page regularly to see if we have posted new appointments in a city near you. If none of the listed interview times are convenient for you or if no interview slots are currently posted, contact Melissa Sersland or Julie Collins to schedule one.

All MSJ Interviews

Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications Applicants

  • For applicants to the Full-time IMC program, admissions interviews will be conducted by invitation only after we have received your application. An invitation to interview means that your application has advanced in the process, but does not imply admission.
  • For applicants to the Part-time IMC and IMC Online programs, interviews are required. You can schedule an interview at any time during the application process. We encourage you to schedule your interview prior to submitting your application or no later than two weeks afterwards. Interviews are held in person at Medill or off campus in locations that our admissions officers visit. For applicants unable to meet in person, interviews may be held via Skype or similar service. If none of the listed interview times are convenient for you or if no interview slots are currently posted, contact Megan Castle at to schedule one.
