Morgan Malouf is a senior at the University of Texas at Austin majoring in Rhetoric and Writing, along with a minor in Communication Studies. When she’s not studying communication and rhetoric, she enjoys wake boarding, being an active member of Delta Delta Delta, and playing guitar. Morgan is very interested in media ethics because she intends to pursue a law degree after her studies conclude at UT Austin. She finds reading about difficult ethical issues in media practices and writing case studies to be challenging but fun, and she’s excited to learn more about modern communication technologies before she starts law school. Morgan hopes to use the Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholar internship as a way to learn more about the ethical issues in communication and to hear from researchers about the contemporary challenges of media use.
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 the fall or spring semester. For more information on the Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholar program, visit here.
