Communication and Media Preview



Communication and Media Preview (CAMP) provides high school students with the opportunity to discover and create stories. During this five-day, four-night immersive experience at The University of Alabama, students will practice skills and improve knowledge related to the fields of communication and media, develop connections with aspiring communicators, and become familiar with the college experience. Participants will work with cutting-edge technology alongside the nation’s leading experts in areas such as advertising, communication studies, creative media, news media and public relations.

Before ever entering college, participants will be exposed to various career options in the field and cultivate their interests around communication and media while engaging in a hands-on, team-centered learning environment. Participants will produce original work and gain a deeper understanding of how communication and media impacts our communities.

Based upon current guidance and in the best interest of our faculty, staff, students, visitors and participants, The University of Alabama is cancelling all Youth Program camps and activities through July 31, 2020, including Communication and Media Preview. If you have already submitted payment for CAMP, we will reach out to you soon regarding processing a refund.
