Interns go to Bavaria to work


Through Professor Dennis Murphy, Concordia has an ongoing exchange relationship with students in Bavaria, a province in southern Germany.

The Programme d'échanges de stagiaires Québec-Bavière is administered by MedienCampus-Bayern and the Quebec Ministry of International Relations. The Quebec interns, who must speak German, are funded under the Quebec-Bavaria agreement in conjunction with a working group of which Murphy is a member via CREPUQ's subcommittee on new technologies.

The location of the internships depends on the backgrounds of the students chosen for the exchange. Last fall’s Bavarian interns worked at Groupe Image Buzz, CyberCap, The Gazette and La Presse.

This summer, three interns are going from Quebec to Bavaria, two of whom are Concordia students. (The third student is from Laval and UQAM.)

Adam Harvie is in the integrated digital program in Computer Science and Fine Arts, and Cristal Duhaime is in Communication Studies with emphasis in sound and radio.

“I will be interning at a rather huge post-production house called Arri Film and Television Group in Munich,” she told CTR.

“I will be working on sound production on two projects while I'm there; one, notably, is being directed by one of Germany's best-known directors, Dorris Dorrie.”
