Agricultural Communications and Leadership Loryn Dion Educational Goals I think the world today needs more people who are proficient in communications studies. Media is exponentially growing and becoming more complex. This means that people are going to be getting information in more ways than we already are. By having a strong background in communications, I’ll be better suited to find new ways to get people the information they need through whatever channel they want it through. By adding my agriculture knowledge into the mix I would be able to organize information about agricultural events and news and send it out to people so that they can be more informed about an industry that it so important to our world. Through BDIC, I want to explore agriculture more, while taking core classes in communications and also strengthen my professional skills by taking classes in leadership, entrepreneurship and education. I plan to call the degree “Agricultural Communications and Leadership”. Also, while taking classes in agriculture, communications and leadership, I am hoping to get myself out in the work force and get real life experiences in this field. I think that for both the agriculture and communications fields alike, it is very important to have real world experiences. In communications, It is important to have strong public speaking skills and be able to maintain control of different people and situations. No matter what you learn in a classroom, you can only gain these skills through actually doing it. For these reasons, I am hoping to either find an internship for a semester, or to go on a domestic exchange study. There are agricultural communications majors already set-up at other institutions across the country. I would love to travel to one of these schools and be able to work with students and professors who are already doing what I am hoping to accomplish. In conclusion, by taking classes in these three main

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
