Alum Success Story: Lucian Friel
I was looking for a program that would further my experience and skills in public relations and integrated communication.
What influenced your decision to attend the Robertson School's M.S. in Mass Communications program?
As a Robertson School undergraduate alumni, I was looking for a program that would further my experience and skills in public relations and integrated communication. I also wanted a flexible program that would work with my busy work schedule. The online format was perfect!
What about the program did you find most useful in your current career?
The most useful part of the program has been the team experiences in the program. The capstone project brings together every aspect of the program and is something that I've included in my portfolio, as it is real world experience.
What are you most proud of from your graduate school experience?
I am most proud of pushing straight through the program during the stress and isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am also proud of the work my cohorts and I put out to the public for a nonprofit that does good in the community.
