Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.

I was inspired to pursue my M.A in Communication to the acquire the appropriate training for a career in Mass Communication, and to become a more critical consumer of the field. In addition, I aspired to refine my written skills to think critically about ways in which the mass media and its writings influence society. I feel that I'm prepared for graduate level work because the program will not only enhance my knowledge of the importance of communicating effectively for a multitude of audiences, it will also enhance my analytical skills for conducting research and providing information ethically.
