B.A. in Speech with a Minor in Journalism and New Media Studies
"My involvement in the JNM minor helped me become the videographer I am today. I started my videography journey my junior year at St. Joseph's, with the help of Professor Phillips. Through this minor, I learned many things, like the basics of filming and editing, how to network and build resumes. But most importantly, Professor Phillips taught me that through hard work and passion any goal or dream is achievable."
