Only at Illinois

The College of Media offers cutting-edge, transformative experiences in advertising, computer science + advertising, journalism, and media & cinema studies. You'll be inspired by our faculty and your fellow students. You’ll be inspired by our classes, many of which are small and set in media labs or seminars. You’ll gain valuable professional and life experience outside of the classroom by getting involved in clubs and societies, and finding internships that are linked to your major and career goals. And you'll have plenty of assistance in reaching your goals. You will get to know the faculty well. Many will bring their deep and rich professional experience as well as their academic research interests into the classroom.

Your academic advisor will assist you in navigating the college landscape, ensuring your progress, and help you maximize your undergraduate experience. Your career director will aid your polished preparations for your internships, career, or graduate school search. See our Graduate Destination Report.

We believe media can change the world. If you do too, join us!
