Winter 2019 Knight Lab Studio Class Now Accepting Applications

Each quarter, multidisciplinary teams of students, faculty, and professionals come together to collaborate in the Knight Lab Studio class, producing cutting-edge digital work, research, and thought, and innovating across every part of the media-making process. The Lab places students together on teams to work on an important problem for the future of media, rapidly moving beyond conversation and hypothesis to well-reasoned action during the quarter. Their process combines user and audience research, design thinking, critical and analytical work, iterative building, storytelling, new technology, and a healthy dose of experimentation—often within the confines of a single, specific problem. The winter 2019 class will include projects on augmented reality, storytelling tools, privacy awareness, and personalized storytelling. Full project details and the application is available at

The class will run from 2:30-4:20 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students may take the class for journalism, computer science, or communications credit. Applications for the class are competitive – in recent quarters, about 1/3 of applicants are accepted. 

Applications for the Studio class are due by 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, November 7. Notifications will be sent to accepted students by November 9, before the normal University registration period begins.
