“The Explore Careers project was funded by the Course Transformation grant program in the College of Liberal Arts. The grant was to provide the large enrollment Introduction to Mass Communication students an opportunity to learn more about the variety of careers in the field of Mass Communication. The grants support use of technology to provide opportunities to students that would be difficult to provide otherwise. One of the greatest benefits of the University of Minnesota’s location is the rich and robust media market here. This project allowed the project’s designers to tap this rich resource and give students a chance to hear the personal stories and background and advice from a wide variety of media practitioners.”

"The project was led by School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) faculty members Kathleen Hansen, Seth Lewis, Nora Paul, Amy Sanders and Jennifer Williams, all of whom teach sections of Jour 1001, Introduction to Mass Communication. A significant proportion of the work was conducted by SJMC Communications Manager Sarah Howard and SJMC Events Coordinator Sue Couling. Video editing services were provided by Alexa Hunt. CLA-OIT staff members Celina Byers and Karen Swoverland provided technical and logistical support.
