Journalism, arts and media converge and flourish at the University of Chicago. Through the University of Chicago's strong liberal arts curriculum, and the new Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, students pursue multiple interdisciplinary areas, even as they become experts in specific areas of interest. As part of Career Advancement, UChicago Careers in Journalism, Arts, and Media (UCIJAM) provides essential professional development opportunities to help students launch successful careers in these fields. Internships, fellowships, employment opportunities, and alumni networks take UChicago students across the country and around the globe, allowing them to grow outside the classroom, develop as professionals, and pursue opportunities in a wide variety of disciplines. UCIJAM also sponsors apprenticeships that allow students to collaborate with local mentors on projects that advance their creative and professional goals.
