    Columbia College Chicago offers a new MA program in Civic Media that equips students with a broad range of media skills to stimulate community action and inspire social change. Priority application deadline is April 15th to be considered for scholarship and assistant-ship opportunities for the 2020-2021 academic year.

    At the heart of the program is a collaborative civic media project. You’ll design, implement, and assess project-based solutions that address real community needs. These projects can vary widely: use digital tools to teach civics in-or out-of-school, or help a community solve an information challenge and build relationships with city leaders, or work with an interest group on a long-term neighborhood-driven quality of life issue. But in the end, the project will coincide with your own interests, skills, and the reciprocal dialogues you build with a broad range of community leaders and learners.

    During the program you’ll draw on the resources available in the nation’s third-largest media market and graduate with a highly desirable skill set in digital literacy, civic education, community action research, strategic communications, design thinking, collaborative project development, cross-platform storytelling, journalism and information analysis, data visualization, and user experience design.

    For more information, contact Dr. Yonty Friesem yfriesem@colum.edu from the Media Education Lab and the founding director of the MA in Civic Media.
