Practicum in Media and Technology

You will work two days a week at a Bay Area media or technology company, working in a professional environment to apply your developing skills in areas such as research, writing, marketing and content strategy. The goal is for you to get the kinds of hands-on experience that helps you develop new skills, do deep research, build confidence in your capabilities and learn how innovative companies and products become successful.

Our goal is to match you with a site that offer the kinds of opportunities you need to enhance your skills, versatility and marketability. You will be expected to fill out a weekly log, receive at least one visit from Medill faculty during the quarter and share your experiences and lessons learned with other students participating in practicums.
