During the summer sessions, more than 5,000 visiting international and domestic students come to our campus. This year, we also plan to invite students from neighboring institutions to learn more about their options for graduate school at Berkeley. This tabling event will be a unique chance to connect with students from across the region, nation, and the world, as well as with the large number of UC Berkeley students taking summer courses. The event will be from 11:00AM to 3:00 PM in the Chevron Auditorium in the International House.
BCNM will have be tabling at the Graduate Programs Fair, we’ll be giving out information about our Designated Emphasis and Graduate Certificate in New Media programs.
BCNM’s Designated Emphasis (D.E.) program is for selected UC Berkeley Ph.D. students from any Berkeley home department with research interests in new media. It is supplemental to the Ph.D. program in the regular departments, and provides enhanced skills in analyzing and/or designing future media with an awareness of historical, social, cultural, and other perspectives that might not be visible from any single disciplinary point of view.
BCNM also offers a Graduate Certificate in New Media as a coursework certification for Master’s students. The Certificate program emphasizes critical understanding of the nature and implications of new media, broadly conceived, drawing on theories and methodologies from across the disciplinary spectrum—the arts, the humanities and social sciences, and science and engineering. The Graduate Certificate in New Media provides students with an introduction to the different facets of new media research and an ensuing competitive edge for some of the most desirable jobs in industry and academia.
