Becca Smouse, '22, BA, Journalism and MS, Digital Audiences Strategy

I’m so grateful for my experience at the Cronkite School; the digital audience program gave me the tools and skills to assess data and turn it into a specific digital strategy that best suits the needs of our district. I was really able to hit the ground running! I’m very grateful for all of the support from my Cronkite professors. I wouldn’t have been able to take this professional leap without their guidance and expertise!
