  • Fall 2013 Washington, D.C. Information Session

    2/19/13
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    Walker Building
    Room 635 [Focus Group Room]

    Recently, a survey canvassing perceptions of HR Directors of the Fortune 500 companies was published. Rated the #1 "desired college experience for employment" was "Internship." With that in mind, please read the following:

    We'll be holding an information session on the Washington, D.C. Internship Program next Tuesday. This session is relevant for students from almost every major. Program Director Richard West and David Griffin, Director of International Study and External Programs at Emerson, will also be on hand to answer questions.

    For those of you who haven't read the The Washington Centernumerous articles (in the Beacon) over the past few years related to the D.C. Program, it's important for you to know that what makes D.C. unlike any other External Program is that the program is highly selective as it is limited to 20 students. Further, you must be a junior or senior with at least a 2.7 to be eligible for application. Applications for the Washington, D.C. Program are being taken NOW. You need to figure out your course load as you receive 16 credits in D.C., should you be selected. Cost is comparable to one semester at Emerson in Boston and also includes housing in a new residential center near Capitol Hill.

    Frankly, this semester is attractive to so many because it is very intimate insofar as Emerson alumni teach a course for us in DC, with guest speakers from all over the D.C. metro area, many of whom are also Emerson alums. We do our best to enhance networking and career opportunities by having both formal and informal gatherings.

    Attending the Tuesday meeting will provide you even more information on the experience.

    One final note that we believe is important. This will be our fourth year providing the D.C. experience and the program's popularity has soared. This is a program for ANY major at the college. While at first glance the program seems to be solely aligned with Political Communication Majors, as most of us know, Washington is also home to some of the most visible non-profit organizations and institutions dedicated to social justice and civic engagement. To this end, those Emerson students with an interest beyond the political environment will find value in applying to the D.C. Semester.

    Finally, as a side note, the past few years, Emerson students have been placed at the following locations:
     

    • The White House
    • Federal Trade Commission
    • Children's Defense Fund
    • Human Rights Campaign
    • Smithsonian Institution
    • National Geographic
    • Emily's List
    • National Defense University-NESA Center
    • ABC News
    • Financial Executives International
    • Center for Inspired Teaching
    • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
    • U.S. Marshals Service
    • Center for Strategic and International Studies
    • MTV Rock the Vote
    • Voice of America
    • PBS
    • Downey McGrath Consulting
    • The Peace Corps
    • Washington Post
    • American Foundation for Suicidal Prevention


    ...............among others. The location is ideal; the opportunities are limitless.

    Past participants have represented the very best of Emerson College. We're terribly proud of their thoughtfulness, expertise, and ambassadorship.

    Thanks for your attention. We hope the semester is going well, and we look forward to seeing you next week.

  • Bright Lights: An Evening with experimental filmmaker Peter Rose

    2/19/13
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Since 1968 Peter Rose has made over thirty films, tapes, performances and installations. Many of the early works raise intriguing questions about the nature of time, space, light, and perception and draw upon Rose's background in mathematics and on the influence of structuralist filmmakers. He subsequently became interested in language as a subject and in video as a medium and generated a substantial body of work that played with the feel and form of sense, concrete texts, political satire, oddball performance, and a kind of intellectual comedy. Recent video installations have involved a return to an examination of landscape, time, and vision. Rose has been widely exhibited, both nationally and internationally, having been included in shows at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the Centre Pompidou, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Film Society at Lincoln Center, and the Rotterdam International Film Festival. He has been awarded fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Pew Foundation, the Independence Foundation, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and is fond of writing descriptions in the third person.
