During my time at the University of West Georgia, each semester I have taken a mixture of classes related to my major, minor and concentration in Public Relations.

RELATED COURSE WORK:
Business Communications (AEBD 3100)
Business Communications Resume Project: For this assignment we were given specific expectations for creating a resume that we would be able to use in the future. Many students had already written a resume before while I had not. This assignment was a great learning experience for me and I later used this resume when applying for my internship at Southwire Company.
Writing and Reporting for Newspapers (COMM 3301)
Student Activities Council Feature Article: This course required students to write various types of articles that are used in newspapers. This included hard news as well as feature style writing. This particular assignment was my final project in the class. We were required to choose a club or event on campus and create a feature article which needed to include quotations from those involved in the event or organization. I chose our Student Activities Committee as the organization for my article.
Public Relations Writing (COMM 4451)
This course has been an amazing learning oppertunity for me. In this class we worked through out the year on expanding our knowledge or Public Relations writing and perfect our craft. Feature articles, public service announcements, news releases and social media posts were among the many types of writing we created during the semester. We also had the chance to partner with the Flint Riverkeepers, an organization working towards establishing water trails along the Flint River. The following are writing pieces that were created specifically for this organizations goals.
