Radio-TV-Film Pre Grad Intern Shari Wells
"My experience in the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre-Graduate Internship was, by far, the biggest influence in my decision to attend graduate school. As an undergraduate student who was completely unfamiliar with what was expected at the graduate level, I had always found the idea foreign and intimidating. Working with my mentor on his research into censorship in the Golden Era of Hollywood gave me hands-on research experience with resources such as the wonderful Harry Ransom Center, as well as a practical look at the requirements I could expect from a graduate program. I discovered not only that I loved researching film history, but that continuing it at the graduate level would be a viable option for me. My experience in the internship was immensely valuable, and I would enthusiastically recommend it to any student trying to figure out if graduate school is right for them."
