Educational Background

Bachelor's Degree 
Tulane University is a private, nonsectarian research university located in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. Founded as a public medical college in 1834, the school grew into a comprehensive university in 1847 and was eventually privatized under the endowments of Paul Tulane and Josephine Louise Newcomb in 1884. Tulane is a member of the Association of American Universities.
 
One of the top-ranked universities in Florida, Saint Leo is a Catholic, liberal arts school serving learners of all faiths. We are traditional, but we are cutting edge Established in 1889 by the Order of Saint Benedict of Florida, the university seeks balanced growth in mind, body and spirit for all members of our community. Saint Leo has grown from a peaceful campus in the rolling hills of Central Florida to an institution of international consequence—ranked one of the best regional universities in the South by U.S. News & World Report Our Tampa-area campus remains committed as ever to student-centered liberal arts education, and is strengthened by the global reach of our regionally accredited online programs and Education Centers in seven states across the U.S., including on many military bases. We are Catholic, but we are for everyone Our determination to make higher education more accessible to all has made Saint Leo a world leader in redefining the 21st century university. Saint Leo now serves nearly 16,000 students from all 50 states and 61 countries—ranking us among the five largest Catholic higher education institutions in the United States. Named one of the top universities in the South by U.S. News & World Report, Saint Leo is also one of the nation's 10 leading providers of higher education to the U.S. military. While we are proudly Catholic, we teach students not because they are Catholic, but because we are Catholic. And our faith compels us to imagine and contribute to a more socially just society

Master's Degree 
The Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania combines the intimacy of highly-selective graduate and undergraduate programs with the dynamism, resources, and personnel of a major research institute. Embedded within one of the world’s top research universities and world-class cities, Annenberg students can follow their research interests at virtually any academic intersection they choose. The influence of digital networks on large-scale group activities, the impact of health-related messages and media content on healthcare decisions, and the aspects of interconnected social, economic, and technological systems on everyday life are just a few of the multi-layered and interconnected fields of research found among Annenberg’s faculty, researchers, and students. With a collegial reach that spans continents, Annenberg today represents the confluence of expertise from visiting scholars and practitioners, providing Annenberg students with the opportunities to interact both formally and informally with some of the most exciting intellectual talent in the world. Graduate students, working in close consultation with their advisors, can design courses of study tailored to their intellectual interests and professional aspirations. They are encouraged to supplement their Communication courses with those offered through one of Penn’s 11 other distinguished schools. Undergraduate students learn from their world-renowned faculty, from practitioners who are leaders in their respective fields, and through hands-on experiences in media, government, entertainment, think-tanks, and other fields. Annenberg undergraduate interns can be found in the U.S. Department of State, on Congressional and Senate staffs, in the programming and newsrooms of network and cable television outlets, and working hand-in-hand with professionals in Madison Avenue advertising agencies. Through Annenberg’s Institute for Public Service, undergraduate students produce political think-tank caliber articles for their undergraduate journal, PoliComm. Every four years they get an up-close look at leadership in the making through a course that provides an inside look at the Democratic and Republican national political conventions. Since 2008 Annenberg undergraduate students attending these national political conventions have provided on the scene reporting services for The Philadelphia Daily News. With interdisciplinary research residing at the core of what goes on every day, Annenberg provides a vibrant, challenging, intellectual experience for students, training them to become leaders in their chosen fields by applying and adapting diverse theories and methods to the cutting-edge communication issues of the twenty-first century. The Annenberg School produces research that advances the understanding of public and private communication. The school educates doctoral students in the theories, substance, and methods of communication research, and provides a first-class liberal arts education to undergraduates through the Communication major.
