My experience as a student in the MACOMM program at Sacred Heart University can be summed up with one phrase: life-changing. I entered the program as a novice in the field of multimedia journalism with the hope to one day produce documentary films. Starting on day one, I was immersed in the multimedia world. I attended class side-by-side with highly motivated and enthusiastic peers who were driven to succeed in a highly competitive field. The quality of instruction I received from the MACOMM faculty opened my eyes to the endless possibilities within the industry. In addition to their expertise and guidance, my professors made me feel that they genuinely cared about me as a professional and a person. I graduated from the MACOMM program with a confidence and optimism that I have no doubt will lead to success in my future professional life.
