New Media majors share their experience!
It wasn't until the fall of my Junior year when I realized the New Media major was for me. After taking one course I fell in love with everything I was learning. I already use the technology that is quickly evolving for fun and keep up with trends and now I can make a living off of it. The New Media major has made me excited to learn, I am no longer afraid of what the future holds. With the skills I learn in New Media I know I will have a successful career.
