In fifty words or less, describe yourself.
Hi! I’m a CM major with threads in People and Film & Media. I love exploring cities, drinking coffee, and going on long walks. I’m also a self-proclaimed meme queen who watches and re-watches too many TV shows on Netflix.
What is the coolest thing you have done in your studies as a CM major?
In my CM classes, I’ve gotten to work on technical projects that allow me to express a bit of my personality in them. For instance, I built a humorous Twitter Bot that tweets Georgia Tech-related memes in a satirical poetic form (think Milk and Vine), and developed a GameBoy Advance game based on my favorite Disney Pixar movie, Inside Out! The skills I gained in my CM classes have also helped me land a software development internship at NASA.
What are your professional goals?
After graduation, I hope to live in a big city and work in user experience or front-end development in a collaborative environment among other designers and engineers.
In one sentence, explain why students should choose the CM major.
Computational Media embraces the art of using the computer as a medium of expression and it allows you to develop computer science, communication, and visual design skills to create impactful products in any field you’d like, whether it’s software engineering, user experience design, entertainment, animation, film, video game development, and beyond.
