About the Research Study
During this course, students were prompted to conduct a semester-long research study in an area of interest within the field of communications. My teammates and I had put down that we were interested in technology and society, thus we were grouped together. This class, Evaluation Methods for Applied Communication Research, taught us to examine new communication and new media through a socio-economic and cultural lens.
