Meet Medill

The best way to learn about our graduate programs is to interact with our students, faculty and staff. Visit us in Evanston or Chicago to see our students in action. Meet us at a conference or campus near you or watch a recorded information session whenever you like. We'll continue to update this page as more events are added. We hope to see you soon.

Information sessions

Attending an in-person or online information session is a great way to learn more about the IMC Full-Time program. You'll meet staff, 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.
