What is the coolest thing you have done in your studies as a CM major?

CM offers so many interesting studio-style courses where you can make incredible pieces of your portfolio, but I think the coolest project I ever made was a cat themed Gameboy game from scratch. I was able to exercise both sides of my brain by creating the graphics and coding all of the game mechanics.

What are your professional goals?

My professional goal is to become a UX/UI designer with a focus on designing interactive, engaging, and accessible mobile applications!

In one sentence, explain why students should choose the CM major.

Graduating with a degree in CM means that you can bridge the gap between software engineers and designers in a way that is very attractive to employers.
