What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? Through my current job, I found my interest in business, but I am a creative at heart. I studied theatre/ acting for my undergrad and fell in love with the creative arts. Seeing this program blends both was perfect for me!

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? The Digital Television Course, the course sounds so amazing and insite for how TV works in the world today.
