I was drawn to the Literature, Media, and Communication degree program at Georgia Tech because of its emphasis on communication, analysis, and critical thinking across various subjects in liberal arts and the sciences. I have learned to apply these skills in a technological context, which will prove to be beneficial in today’s increasingly tech-savvy society. As a result of studying LMC, I have become a more well-rounded individual and am confident that what I have learned here will help me succeed in my future career endeavors.

I pursued the LMC major at Tech because I love science and math but I also love being creative.  I will use my degree to pursue a career in film production and public relations. The great part about pursuing a LMC degree is that I can work for either technical companies such as GE and Siemens or mass media companies such as Turner South and CNN. I’ve been able to gain ample experience working with engineering concepts in labs and I’ve also been able to gain real-world experience through LMC by working on short films and podcasts. In today’s economy and job market, it is best to be as well rounded as possible and I feel as though the LMC program has more than prepared me.

I would describe myself as a digital and social media enthusiast. I live for the thrill of marketing online and the impact of viral media on society. I feel a connection engaging with social media users and communicating worldwide with individuals using the web. I am passionate about this industry and have my LMC major and concentration in Media Studies to thank for introducing me to it. Through the LMC program at Georgia Tech I have learned the importance of communication and its ability to take many different forms. I have been exposed to all sorts of media and learned the hand it can have in shaping our society.

It was somewhere in between the six and seventh page of a research paper concerning the breeding habits of sea urchins that I realized Biology wasn’t for me. I wanted more from my college career than rounding errors and standard deviation, yet I didn’t want to divorce myself from the sciences completely. I couldn’t help but want to be a modern day Renaissance man who studied everything and anything. I wanted to spend the next four years of my life studying something that I could mold, shape, and make into my own. One major caught my eye in particular, one I heard nothing about and one that offered both the diversity and flexibility that I craved so much; LMC, they called it. I took a gamble and bet on a liberal arts degree from an engineering institute and it couldn’t have paid off more. During my time as a LMC major I’ve studied everything from Hemingway, data representation, intellectual property law, web design, and film. Without a doubt, I will go into the business world comfortable with the fact that I can think critically about technical issues and express myself clearly in a professional environment. Finding a career will be the easy part, deciding which piece of knowledge I’d like to use the most may not be quite as easy.
