The Cal Lutheran Experience

Communication major photo of student or faculty

As a communication major I have had the opportunity to discover and pursue many avenues in my college career. I've been able to build skills that are specific to writing and reporting news, but I have acquired skills that can help me outside of journalism, such as in movie production, web design, research and more.

I’ve always been interested in what drives people to make certain decisions and act in particular ways. By understanding the driving forces, I believe that it is much easier to be sympathetic and tolerant toward everyone, even when you don’t agree with them. I love Cal Lutheran’s supportive and encouraging psychology professors who were instrumental in helping me get into a doctoral program.

I believe that I benefited the most from classes that weren’t highly advertised within the department, such as the Costume and Scene and Acting for Shakespeare classes. You can become part of the industry in other ways and continue to develop your acting skills, all while continuing your career path.
