Work With Us: Students
The Emergent Media Center offers employment and internships for students across all divisions and years of the College. Each year, across fall, spring, and summer semesters, the EMC offers over 100 student opportunities.
EMC employs a range of talents across multiple disciplines to address issues directly related to our partners' needs and interests. Business students lead student production teams and lend marketing skills; Education and Psychology students inform content creation for best learning practices; Game Studio, App Development, Computer Science, Graphic Design & Visual Communication, and Filmmaking students all develop media components for Center projects. Students interested in physical prototyping can also get involved with our affiliated Makerspace and work on collaborative physical-digital projects.
The EMC offers you a unique opportunity to get hands-on, real-world experience while still in college. Work at the EMC is paid employment, outside of your academic work, that offers you a stepping stone to the professional workplace.
- You will apply, enhance, and expand what you're learning in your major and work in cross-disciplinary teams, just like you will in industry.
- Using a human-centered design approach and agile development methodologies, you will think critically, take risks, understand process, and reflect on your practice, both individually and in community.
- You will build workplace-readiness skills ("hard" technical skills and "soft" interpersonal skills) while bolstering your resumé and portfolio.
Note: new opportunities are generally listed in August for fall semester employment, December for spring semester employment, and April for summer employment.
