Telling Your Story as an LMC Major

LMC, at its heart, is all about storytelling! From exploring literature and culture to experiencing different forms of media to learning how to communicate effectively, Literature, Media, & Communication provides you with a vast array of assets and skills. But how do you get the most out of your experience at Tech with LMC? How do you explain what LMC is to other folks? How do you connect these dots for future employers?

Here are a few ideas, tips, and tricks on how to tell your story:

Going to college is about more than just getting a degree so you can get a good job. It’s about learning who you are, finding and exploring your passions, and expanding your understanding of the world around you. LMC provides you with the space and opportunity to learn how to articulate your skills and work well with others in an inclusive and thoughtful way. Each semester, you want to think about what content you’ll be exploring, what experiences you plan to have, and how your classes can connect to one another.

 Here are some questions to ask yourself along the way:


What subjects/topics/concepts do you want to learn about within LMC?
What subjects/topics/concepts do you want to learn about in other areas?
How can you balance a variety of topics that challenge you?


What campus and community events can you get involved in?
What workshops, media-making, or internship opportunities can you try?
What soft skills and hard skills do you hope to gain?


How are your classes expanding your perspectives on the world around you?
How do your classes connect to your career goals and dream jobs?
What surprises you about the topics and discussions you’re engaging in?


Combine cultural exploration and quality experiences to become a more well-rounded artist, communicator, designer, writer, lawyer, teacher, doctor… the list goes on and on when it comes to what our LMC alumni become!

 LMC classes encourage you to explore different ways of thinking, how to be a better decision-maker, and challenge you to bring your passions and skills to better the world. You have the opportunity to get to know your professors, work with them on research and projects, and develop genuine relationships for future letters of recommendation and connections.
