Rachel Moore is a third year Radio-Television-Film and Advertising double major. Rachel studied abroad the summer after her sophomore year and took classes that highlighted the importance of looking at global issues through an ethical perspective. Since then she has been interested in the ethics of advertising, especially as it pertains to technology, interactive media, and influencers. As a Media Ethics Initiative Research Scholar, she is excited to deepen her understanding of ethics in the everyday world of advertising.
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.
