Holland Smith is a senior at the University of Texas at Austin majoring in Political Communication and minoring in Government. Holland’s interests in politics and broadcast journalism are closely related to the issues of media ethics, and she looks forward to exploring the intersection between the two over the course of the semester. As a Media Ethics Initiative Research Scholar, she is excited to analyze challenging and relevant topics and applying her findings to her own media use.
Media Ethics Initiative Research Scholars earn credits and research 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 skills 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 Research Scholar program, visit here.
