The  Evergreen Media Internship  program provides advanced students a dynamic, hands-on work and learning experience in which they develop professional and academic skills in a highly collaborative media production environment, under the guidance of staff supervisors and a faculty sponsor. As a cohort, the interns strengthen leadership, collaboration, communication, organizational, and technical skills as a critical part of the Media Services team, supporting instruction, equipment and lab maintenance, oversight of media facilities, and campus productions. Students will work 30 hours per week earning 12 credits as an Evergreen Media Intern in one of the following areas: Audio (2 interns), Video (2 interns), Production, and Instructional Media/Animation & Film.

This program also involves a 4-credit academic component each quarter (representing 10 hours of academic work per week in addition to the 30 hours of internship work). The faculty sponsor will meet with students at least once a week to support continued skill development and academic work in media studies and production. Students will do independent research into technologies and artists of their choice and will present their findings to the group. As they expand their practical and theoretical knowledge of media technologies and forms, interns will examine their own roles as producers, artists, teachers, and leaders through Academic Statement work and other reflective writing. During winter and spring quarters, students will have the opportunity to work on individual and/or collaborative creative projects supported through extensive critique processes.

The Media Internship program requires a yearlong commitment from fall through spring quarters. For more information about prerequisites for each specific internship and how to apply, please contact Vito Valera, the Media Interns Coordinator and Associate Director of Media Services ( vito.valera@evergreen.edu ), or Laurie Meeker, Member of the Faculty (Film/Video) & Academic Sponsor, ( meekerl@evergreen.edu ).
