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 courses at the bachelor's level. I was provided with personal assistance, a flexible schedule, and a hands-on learning environment that was provided at Eckerd College. Therefore, I took admission in this university.
Currently, I am studying an overview of the subject matter, history, and current theories. Theories about the individual, society, and media that emphasizes research, rhetoric, and analysis are also included in the curriculum.
