Through my time at ASU Online, I have learned various theories and facts about how people consume media. This information has helped me when coming up with marketing strategies to maximize my social media platforms. It has also provided a better understanding between my fans and I, and our relationships with each other have grown stronger.
The film study portion of my degree has provided me with a deeper understanding of the visual media section of the entertainment industry. As an artist, I create music videos and have interacted with various professionals through television networks and such. The comprehension of how these other professionals in the industry operate allows me to have efficient communication with them and make our time working together flow more efficiently.
I still have a lot of learning to do here at Arizona State University, but I am already applying my coursework to my day-to-day life. My advice to those who are in pursuit of that perfect degree path: think outside the box. Knowing what you want to do and how you want to grow is key for picking the best route. There was not an online music degree for me to choose. Instead, I thought about how my career could grow and what other skills and knowledge I needed to succeed in my profession. Ask yourself the hard questions, think outside the box and into the future, and I guarantee you will find the path for you.
