Bachelor of Arts, Communication Studies
I am currently working towards a Bachelors of Arts and Sciences degree in Communication Studies. My concentration is Organizational Communication and Public Relations. Classes I have taken so far include organizational communication and persuasion theory. In organizational communication, I worked with team members to create a fundraiser for the non-profit organization, SPCA. During persuasion theory, I was able to create a campaign with group members against teen "sexting."Work conducted during these classes can be viewed on the left side. While taking fundamentals of public relations, I created press releases and media scans for the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences targeting prospective students. The work conducted during my 150-hour internship at Ocean Aisle Events can be seen on under work examples.
