Communication and Media Preview

Communication and Media Preview (CAMP) provides high school students with the opportunity to discover and create stories. During this six-day, five-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.

Students with expressed financial need may apply for a scholarship to cover the full cost of CAMP. Students who apply for a scholarship should wait to register for CAMP until hearing back about their scholarship application status.
