Emerging Media Studies MA '20

About Alexis Shore

Prior to BU

In December, 2018, I graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Communication. After graduation, I had the opportunity to work at the Future of Privacy Forum doing work regarding student privacy legislation and school safety initiatives.

Why Emerging Media Studies

For a long time, I have been passionate about the privacy issues that emerge alongside new technologies. Thus, I decided to pursue a graduate degree to both expand my research skills and expertise on the subject matter and also prepare me to produce academic research. The EMS department struck my attention because of its interdisciplinary nature. It is giving me the opportunity to study what I love from the lens of policy, psychology, and theory. I enjoy the diversity of faculty research interests, as it has given me multiple perspectives on emerging media topics.

After Graduation

After the EMS MA program, I plan to pursue my PhD in the field in hopes of producing meaningful research and eventually become a professor.
