    I opted for this college because, Carleton is among one of the top universities to study in Canada. It offers around 80 major and minor programs included, with my subject being one of the major course. For the admission process, I applied through the online college portal for which I paid $150 from my credit card. This was the only college I had applied due to the application fee cost being very costly for an Indian student like me.

    Course Curriculum :

    To be honest, due to the ongoing pandemic things have become a bit difficult, mainly due to the online classes. However with that being said, there is a lot of research work and we are currently required to do our own practical taking in consideration of the surroundings. For practical we are given topics and later on are discussed in the online class sessions.

    I came to know about this college through my brother who lives in Canada and applied after his recommendation. I applied through the online college portal for which I paid $100. In order to be eligible, my high school results and IELTS scores were checked in which I scored 7. Also, this university was the first college to offer me an admission letter.

    Course Curriculum :

    One thing that I have learnt through this course is that media is such a powerful tool which can be used either to inform or control people. I came to know about a lot of interesting theories and my perspectives have changed compared to when I had started this course.
