The Evergreen State College

Center for Creative & Applied Media

Evergreen has been a destination for media students since 1971 — and it still is.

Students continue to come to Evergreen because of its reputation for media studies. In a recent survey, 28 percent of new first-year and transfer students reported plans to focus in media or closely-related studies.

Support the Center

Media education has always been a critical component of an Evergreen education.

Whether our graduates choose to participate fully in or challenge our media-driven culture, they need to be prepared to obtain information, analyze its content, assess its veracity within the world they live, and to make informed choices. Media is no longer a boutique field of studies; it is a fundamental area of knowledge for students in all disciplines. The six expectations of an Evergreen graduate are a tall order, and if our students don’t encompass media literacy in the twenty-first century, it will not be possible for them to meet those expectations.

Introducing, Evergreen's CCAM — an up-to-date facility for media instruction which also supports the media needs of faculty across multiple disciplines.

The Center for Creative & Applied Media houses Media Engineering, the new TV Studio, and more — advanced media access and education in a highly-current and technologically fluid environment.

As the College’s media hub, the Center provides functional studio space for production, teleconferencing, broadcast across the college’s audio-visual and computer networks, and preservation of a burgeoning collection of media files (audio, video, film, etc.) in formats that are accessible in today’s technological environment.

The CCAM benefits Evergreen in many areas

  • Improved opportunities for students in media studies programs, with hands-on training and professional-grade equipment;
  • Digital conversion, editing, and storage of media documents;
  • Increased media access for all students and faculty, promoting media literacy for all students;
  • Teleconferencing to support the academic and administrative work of the college; and
  • Theory and practice in the pedagogical area of Virtual Learning Communities.
