Fall 2015, Winter 2016 and Spring 2016 quarters
This academic program is the home for the Evergreen Electronic Media Internships (also known as Media Services Internships). The EM Internships provide advanced students opportunities to gain deep knowledge of specific media concepts and skills in the context of a tightly knit cohort who collaborate on developing academic and creative research agendas that parallel and are informed by their work as interns. Students will work 30-40 hours per week earning 12-14 credits as an intern in one of the following areas: Animation/Imaging, Audio, Media Loan, Multimedia Lab, Music Technology, Production, Video Production and Video Post-production. Each intern develops instructional, technical, research, organizational, leadership, communication and collaborative skills as they work with supervising staff associated with each of these areas to support instruction, maintenance and administration of facilities and to fulfill campus production needs.
This program also involves a two-credit academic component in the fall and a four-credit academic component in winter and spring. Students will focus their academic work on individual research into the critical history/theory of specific media technologies with an emphasis on social, cultural and economic influences on their development and adoption by both mainstream and alternative producers. As they expand their practical and theoretical knowledge of media technologies interns will examine their own roles as producers, artists, teachers and leaders through Academic Statement work and other reflective writing. Students will have the opportunity to work both collaboratively and individually on creative projects involving media production. Interns meet weekly as a group with staff or faculty to share skills, seminar on readings or screenings, peer review writing, collaborate on projects, and work together on productions and cross-training in all Media Services areas. The EM Internship program requires a yearlong commitment from fall to spring quarters.
