Upcoming Programs

2018 IRTS Faculty Industry Seminar

In an effort to bridge the gap that can sometimes exist between classroom and industry, IRTS provides an annual opportunity for university educators  to meet with senior media and entertainment executives. It’s an ideal opportunity to discuss the changing nature of our business. The generosity of companies and individuals has made it possible for us to underwrite this unique educational experience for more than four decades.

Thanks to our partnership with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the 2018 IRTS Faculty Seminar is MEDIA INSIDERS: Today’s Opportunities & Tomorrow’s Challenges. Attendees will also have the added advantage of attending CES 2018.

2018 Summer Fellowship Program

The Summer Fellowship Program, the most notable student out-reach effort of IRTS, teaches up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an expense-paid fellowship, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice. Each year college juniors, seniors and graduate students are selected nationwide to participate in the nine-week Summer Fellowship Program. Check back in the fall for our 2018 application!
