Explore Media
June 4-8, 2017

Explore Media (formally known as Media Academy) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's College of Journalism and Mass Communications is a four night, five-day workshop where students are immersed into the world of mass communications. This workshop gives students the opportunity to discover Lincoln, stay in a University of Nebraska–Lincoln dorm, eat at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln dining halls, and experience life as a CoJMC student. Get a taste of "college life" and leave this workshop with a better understanding of what going into media has to offer. You’ll work alongside professionals and faculty to gain experience in fields of advertising and public relations, broadcasting, journalism and sports media at one of the nation's top-ranking programs. Students will have an opportunity to showcase their work throughout the workshop. No experience needed.

  • Hands-on learning from experienced professionals
  • Visit area newsrooms and ad agencies
  • Sharpen your communication skills
  • Produce work for publication
  • Network with professionals
  • Residential experience
  • Showcase your talents
  • Meet other students interested in media

This workshop is open to high school sophomores and juniors who are interested in media careers and is offered at no cost to students thanks to the generous support of the University of Nebraska Foundation. Space is limited, so register today.
