Experiental Learning Mass Media



One day soon, you’ll be working on a news program, on a film, writing for a newspaper, pitching to a client, creating a podcast, or managing social media for a business. And, we don’t mean when you graduate!

Southeast’s Department of Mass Media interweaves the work with the curriculum. If you’re a multimedia journalism student, you’ll find yourself working on the award-winning Arrow newspaper or on one of the many cable programs produced by the TV/Film area.

Advertising students have their own agency, SECreative, where they have real clients locally who they develop multimedia ad campaigns for.

Film students participate in the Faultline Film Festival, an annual Midwest festival open to university and high school students.

How about hands-on learning and career development opportunities at the happiest place on earth: Walt Disney World? Southeast has had multiple students from all its colleges across many departments participate in the Disney College Program, a unique five- to seven-month program allowing participants to network with leaders, take part in personal and career development classes, and build transferable skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, guest service and effective communication. Each role offered through the Disney College Program is a paid internship and provides a unique and diverse learning and working experience for one of the world's largest brands.

Whatever your area of interest in media, we have lab work, often for real clients, to complement your classes. Plus, did we mention internships and study abroad?
