Opportunities for Experience

Senior Seminar

The senior seminar projects allow majors to explore topics of particular interest through research and oral presentations. Recent topics included advertising on the Internet; a rhetorical analysis of the Holocaust Museum; a semiotic reading of the Kuching (Malaysia) Waterfront; a discussion of The London Times‘ handling of Saddam Hussein and the Iraqis; and a feminist reading of “girl rock groups.”

Senior Creative Media Project

The Senior Creative Media Project option is designed to accommodate students whose main interest is in media production.

The project will be composed of a creative media project such as a short fictional, documentary, or animated film; a web site; a multimedia project; or an investigative journalism project. The student prepares a written artist/journalist statement as well as a public screening/showing of the project leading a discussion with the audience.

Summer Research

Randolph’s intensive eight-week Summer Research Program enables Randolph students to focus on a specific aspect of communication studies, working closely with a professor and gaining invaluable professional and academic skills. Students conduct research that is complemented by a thorough review of the relevant literature; live in a residence hall on campus, so that they can be close to their professors and participate in on-campus summer events; attend special seminars with guest speakers; and share the progress of their research at informal forums organized throughout the summer.
