Anna Rose Isbell is sophomore Communication Studies major in UT Austin’s Moody College of Communication. When she’s not studying topics in corporate communication, she enjoys reading, running, and playing golf. Anna Rose is very interested in media ethics, and she hopes to learn more about how the media can influence many aspects of human life that often go overlooked. In addition to her studies in communication, she is pursuing a certificate in UT Austin’s Bridging Disciplines Program in “Ethics and Leadership in Law, Politics, and Government.” She is excited to learn more about how these topics are intertwined with media ethics over the coming semester. Anna Rose plans to attend law school after completing her studies at UT Austin, and she is excited about writing case studies as a Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholar because it will further develop her analytical and writing skills.
Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholars are part of the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre-Graduate School Internship program at the University of Texas at Austin. This internship is open to students in all UT colleges, schools, and departments. Citizen Scholars earn credits and valuable experience by working with the Media Ethics Initiative to promote reflection on media ethics among students and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin. They gain valuable experience by assisting the organizing and promotion of Media Ethics Initiative events, as well as by researching and writing case studies in media ethics. Interested UT Austin students can sign up for a 1, 2, or 3 credit internship for fall or spring semesters. For more information on the Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholar program, visit here.
