The Evergreen Media Internship  Program (EMIP) is ready to safely get back to mostly in-person work with a new cohort of interns!  

EMIP 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 faculty sponsors. 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 and post-production. Students will work full-time in one or more of the following areas: Audio, Video, Photography, Production, Post-production, and Instructional Media.  

The faculty sponsors will meet with students weekly to support continued development in media studies and creative skills. 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 reflective writing. Fall work includes extensive training in all aspects of media production. During winter and spring quarters, students will have the opportunity to work on collaborative and individual creative projects supported through critique processes and technical consultations with media experts.  

The Evergreen Media Internship Program requires a yearlong commitment from fall through spring quarters. To promote successful participation, students will be provided with production gear packages by the college for the duration of their internship. Students can expect teaching and work hours to be hybrid, with some remote/online activities and significant in-person activities as conditions permit. We practice covid safety protocols for all in-person activities following state and college guidance and requirements.
