Bailey Sebastian is a third year Human Development & Family Sciences and Philosophy double-major with a minor in Communication Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. When not working on her studies in these varied areas, she enjoys golfing, spending time with family and friends around Austin, going to comedy shows, and eating delicious vegan food. Bailey has always enjoyed discussing ethical issues so the Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholar internship really appealed to her when she was selecting courses for the spring semester. She looks forward to writing case studies on overlooked topics and technological challenges in media and communication ethics during her internship.
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.
