STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY - BEST FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

I was always enthralled by the fact of doing all the daily courses on my own, handling transportation issues, and doing other things on my own. This interest made me apply to USA universities and colleges. I took a loan, consulted a study abroad consultancy, and took admission at Texas Southern University.


Course Curriculum - 

Print Journalism and Advertising-Public relations are the specialties offered by the course. As the digital revolution proceeds, we are learning how to learn, write and edit, create websites, write titles, shoot and edit video, and achieve social media campaigns. How to report and how to persuade and put it all together in an elegant package is also a part of the curriculum. Some of my seniors have gone on to work at broadcast stations, newspapers, and corporations.
