I had tried in many colleges in India but due to a lot of competition and the difficult procedure, I decided to opt for USA universities. I applied to all the universities offering Communication course at the bachelor's level. Then I got an offer letter from the Woodbury University and I took admission.
The Communication program allowed me to tailor my education in media studies. From the curriculum I am learning how to speak about, write about, promote and produce a range of communication media including print, television, film, and social media, as well as media forms of the future. Studying this course has proved a boon for me.
