My degree gave me a strong foundation in media and communication theories and research methods —Laxmi Parthasarath, BA ‘10
I am currently the Director of Global Media Partnerships for Ashoka: Innovators for the Public in Washington, D.C. I joined a small team at Ashoka to lead the 35-year-old organization through an internal strategy change.
I first developed my interest in global media in my third year at Carleton. The communication studies program provided the opportunity to also gain hands-on experience working on a radio program in Kigali, Rwanda through a Carleton University internship program. Most significant to my career preparation was the strong foundation in media and communications theories and research methods required for advanced study. The opportunity to complete a double major in the school of Public Affairs equipped me to pursue international graduate training and feel prepared for future multidisciplinary studies and professional practice.
