    • The Communication program offered me ample room for exploration, allowing me to combine my interests in media, gender, and sexuality studies to become both a critical media consumer and media producer. My entire career has been based around these interests, and my time at MMC really helped put that foundation down for my graduate studies and subsequent jobs.
