I believe FSC is the reason I'm in my dream job. The classes, and even the student organizations, prepared me for real life experiences. What I was doing with my internship is what I’m in charge of now at my work.

I love all of the opportunities that are available in the Communications department. From FSCTV to The Southern to Luxe 12, there's always a way to get involved that will prepare you for your future. I feel like I've learned just as much participating in these organizations as I have in the classroom.

Featured Multimedia Journalism Faculty

Dr. Cara Mackie
- Communication Department Chair

In the classroom, I not only teach theories of human communication, but also help students become better communicators. I start my courses by stating, 'It will take hard work to succeed, but I am working just as hard to be there for you. We build these ideas together. You will be great.' Students leave my class with a better understanding of themselves and with confidence to succeed in various forms of interpersonal relationships.
