I've chosen my path at IU carefully. I have picked a curriculum that takes a deep dive into my (many) interests, but also will allow me to acquire the skills needed for any career. It's all part of my 2-2-3-4 Plan at IU:

Journalism (concentration in public relations), political science (concentration in law), and economics.

PUBLIC RELATIONS RESEARCh and planning
College: The Media School, College of Arts and Sciences
Term: Fall 2021
CLASS DESCRIPTION: This class examines how research plays a crucial role in decision making. The course demands students plan an extensive research study on a timely issue. My semester, the course looked at the future of electric vehicles.
MY WORK: Each group was assigned a mock client. My group's assigned mock client was General Motors. Throughout the semester, we completed a variety of analyses, including a secondary analysis, quantitative analysis, and qualitative analysis. All of our research was combined and used to craft a series of public relations recommendations to GM. At the end of the course, we created a mock pitch if we were sitting in front of GM's public relations team.
