Meet Medill

The best way to learn about the IMC graduate program is to interact with our students, faculty and staff. If you’re in the area, visit us in Chicago or Evanston to see our students in action. Watch a recorded information session or meet us at an event near you. We'll continue to update this page as more events are added. We hope to see you soon.

Information sessions and webcasts

Attending an in-person or online information session is a great way to learn more about the IMC Online program. You'll meet faculty, current students or alumni who can answer your questions about how our programs can help you achieve your career goals. You'll also hear from our admissions team about the application process.

We also host webcasts, which are delivered online and focus on a specific topic related to the IMC program. Webcasts are recorded for delayed viewing.

Campus visits

While most IMC Online students work and live remotely, you can still visit our Evanston or downtown Chicago campuses to learn about the IMC community and interact with Medill colleagues in person. During your visit, you'll gain a deeper understanding of our programs, talk with an admissions counselor and see first-hand our unique approach to marketing communications in the digital age.
