Dana Shang '18 tells us about her time at SC&I and offers advice to future graduate students. 

During your time at SC&I, did you participate in any internships or other employment options?

While I was at SC&I, I was a MCM Marketing Intern and Instructional Assistant, a Research Assistant and the previous summer, I did an internship at Princeton Lightwave as a Digital Marketing Specialist.

How do you think the MCM program is preparing you for your chosen profession?

I think the MCM program is a platform from where I feel more confident presenting myself to other people. I built my career path from here - The program provided the chance for me to experience different specializations in the communication industry until I finally decided what I really want for my career.

In your opinion, what are the top 3 benefits of the MCM program?

  • An understanding and open-minded program director who really values students’ voices.
  • Lots of on campus job opportunities, with decent pay.
  • Flexible with specializations and course load.

What advice would you give to graduating seniors, or those considering a graduate degree?

If you haven’t decided what you want to do in the future, this is the right place because you can experience nearly all the major specializations in the communication industry with professional guidance.
