University of Miami School of Communication welcomed three new professors this fall.
With only two semesters left in my undergraduate Media Management studies, I knew that the summer of 2017 should be filled with some form of work experience. After applying to what felt like thousands of internships all across the media and entertainment industries in various cities, I received an email from the Charlotte Independence professional soccer team and Charlotte Hounds professional lacrosse team (both of which are run by the same company).
An assessment of the "cord-cutting" trends in the video business, a survey examining relationships between Facebook use and sleep patterns, and an analysis of music streaming and piracy were the topics of the three winning entries of this year's Media Management Association (MMA) Awards.
A new student-run consultancy is ready to take on clients at University of Miami School of Communication. Orange Umbrella Student Consultancy recently opened, offering an array of services to clients including public relations, advertising, interactive media, film production, research, and web design.
Graduating this May, senior Oliver Redsten is a 22-year-old student double-majoring in broadcast journalism and political science, with a minor in history. Redsten found his passion for digital storytelling and journalism at a young age and credits the School of Communication for helping him grow and challenging him to ask “why journalism?”
