First-year students who are interested in Communications will spend the week getting an insider’s look into the lively media industries of New York City and Connecticut. Communications professors, graduate student advisors and upperclassmen will join you on day trips to exciting locations like NBC Studios in Stamford, ESPN Studios in Bristol and the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC as we get a behind the scenes look at television production and engage with the world of contemporary media. Students will also spend time getting oriented to our brand new production facilities, including two television studios, two control rooms, screening rooms, editing and motion capture labs, etc. Students will create short video productions based on our experiences. No prior production experience is necessary - just an interest in the exciting world of the film and television industries!
Space is limited – please apply early for your best chance at acceptance.
*Students will receive 1 credit in the Humanities at the completion of the program.
$550 (most meals, 1 academic credit, and early admittance to housing for those students living on campus is included)
