Student Spotlight-Anja Peterson

When I arrived at UT I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to major in, let alone strive for a career in. Once I took my first communication course, I knew I was in the right place. The School of Communication Studies has afforded me the opportunity to develop both marketable and relational skills while supporting me every step of the way. The professors, faculty, and my classmates have made this experience wholly remarkable. From wildly fascinating course content to meaningful support from professors I could not have made a better decision than to join the communication studies major. Not to mention the sheer versatility a degree in communication studies provides.

I am excited to begin working for the Transportation Security Administration. I’m confident that the foundation the school has allowed me to develop will continue to serve me as I progress in my career working for the federal government. From marketing to government service to education, I can’t wait to see where my fellow rock ‘n rollers venture and am blessed to be surrounded by the communication studies community!”
