What is EMERGE Magazine?
As has been the case for the last twelve years, the EMERGE project gives students the opportunity to gain experience and work alongside other specializations in the program to produce professional media content. This years project includes a web magazine, a print magazine, promotional and documentary video content, a podcast, social media, a visual showcase and an award ceremony to celebrate the work of media students across Canada.
The overarching theme chosen for this year’s EMERGE Magazine is the concept of “the non-linear path.”
What is The Non-linear Path?
The world is in a perpetual state of evolution, and by simple virtue of time, the so-called “traditional way” is growing more and more obsolete. There is no longer one straightforward path or method to achieving one’s goal or finding one’s path in life, whether professional or personal.
In order to survive and thrive, we must be able to adapt and be flexible enough to allow the “impossible” to happen.
Content this year will feature those that correspond to the concepts of change, adaptation, and evolution. It will give you a preview of what it’s like to jump headfirst into today’s media landscape at the University of Guelph-Humber and equip you with some of the tools to thrive there, even if it’s uncertain where you’re headed professionally or personally.
The Many Paths of GH media
On every path, there are forks in the road where decisions need to be made. The path that future Guelph-Humber Media students will be on is no different. Should students choose Guelph-Humber, they’ll need to choose a stream of Media to specialize in. There are 5 specializations to choose from, which are: Digital Marketing & Social Media, Media Management & Analytics, Multimedia Journalism, Public Relations, and Visual Communication. There are many different career paths that come with a Guelph-Humber Media degree. Learn more about the Media and Communications Studies program here.
