出版文学硕士. I started as an English major at Rosemont and worked my way to the 出版 program
大二的时候. 的 thing 那 I loved about these programs was 那 I could
把它们变成我自己的. My undergrad advisor saw potential in me and accelerated
按我的要求. I realized over time 那 all of the staff at Rosemont taught
我要为自己辩护. As a Raven Peer Leader I would always tell incoming freshmen
那 their time in college was whatever they made it to be. 没有人握住我的手
I asked for what I wanted, as I made my own honors assignments for non-honors classes,
and as I convinced the director of the 研究生 出版 Program to let me start
This confidence has stayed with me throughout the early parts of my career. 作为一个 assistant at 跑新闻, I asked for a promotion within a year of getting hired. I asked for what I thought I deserved, and I usually received what I asked for. 晚些时候 on, when I was shaping new initiatives at 跑新闻, I helped my supervisors create a new position 那 was molded to my goals and vision for the company. 我不会 have gotten as far as I have without the guidance of my advisors at Rosemont, encouraging 让我永远为我应得的而奋斗.
In the 研究生 出版 Program, my professors guided me to gain the knowledge and experience to confidently start my career in the publishing industry. 与每个 class, I felt new challenges and 更多的 opportunities to learn about the industry. I started my job at 跑新闻 knowing 更多的 than most of my colleagues about the 我们部门以外的部门. I used my knowledge of 出版 law to weed through contracts and find permissions when using author and illustrator content in marketing 活动. I used my knowledge of indie bookstore operations to set up an authorless event kit when we were challenged for funds to send our actual authors on tour. My background on trends in the Children’s lit space came in handy when sitting in on 新职称会议. And my thesis work on the social media landscape in book publishing helped to shape my role as Associate Digital Marketing Manager, a position created 只为我和我的目标.
Dual Degree, 英语和传播学学士学位 and 出版文学硕士. Rosemont gave me a path 那 allowed me to find a destination. 多亏了 女子足球项目我找到了正规赌博十大平台排行. Thanks to Writing 110, I found the English and Communications 部门. And thanks to Professor Katie Baker, I found the 研究生 出版 正规赌博十大平台排行学院的项目.
I always thought I wanted to go to journalism school after Rosemont, but editing and 写作是我需要做的事情. 的 4+1 program gave me 那 chance and gave me 那 opportunity to jump-start a path to my future career.
In the fall of 2017, I entered 出版 Overview, where I was the only 双学位本科生. Walking into 那 class on the first night presented me with two challenges: meet 新认识的人，和他们谈论出版. 我一点也不知道，这就是我要去的地方 to have to do every day for the rest of my professional life.
In the spring of 2018, I juggled three graduate and three undergraduate courses. 在 this semester, I recognized my path for the program: the editorial concentration. At 那 moment, I noticed how important editing was. 是的，作者写了这本书 or article, but the editor is responsible for making it sound good, for conveying the author’s voice and tone and meaning, and for bringing the book its life in this world in the form of acquisition and eventually publication.
With summer, I started the leg work for my thesis – a now completed 87-page paper 让我无比自豪的事. This semester taught me about the additional realms of publishing, but also helped me realize 那 publishing (and the working world) doesn’t stop for the summer and neither does the work it will take for me to get there.
这次跌倒让我意识到很多事情. 在花费了数不清的时间之后 my thesis while focusing on my final undergraduate semester and soccer season, I recognized just how important my future occupation would be, and 那 I was ready to be there.
In the spring of 2019, after just completing my 英语和传播学学士学位, I presented myself with the final challenge: finish the program. 感谢马歇尔 Warfield, the program's director, and his recognition of my drive to finish, I was able to balance four classes, the final semester of my thesis, and working part-time 无论是在家里还是在学校.
At the end of four years and after completing my final semester, I walked for my undergraduate 在同一个典礼上获得研究生学位. 当然，和其他学生一样，我也是 happy to say 那 I earned my degree, but the program and Rosemont brought me so much 更多的.
Rosemont – between undergraduate and graduate school – brought me lifelong friends, 一个团队，一个家庭，一个教育. But it also brought me the realities of life including long nights, busy workloads, and lots of cups of coffee. 程序本身 brought me drive and desire to work within publishing, but also made me realize some of life’s most important lessons and experiences: balance work and life, find what you love to do every day and you’ll never dislike going to work, take opportunities and chances because you’ll never know where they will take you, and to never give up.
Three weeks after graduation, I started as an Editorial Assistant for CFMA Building Profits, an association magazine aimed at construction and financial industry professionals. Every day, I use the skills and knowledge of editing, proofreading, and publishing 那 I learned in Rosemont’s 研究生 出版 program.
I also use the other life lessons of communication, balance, hard work, passion, and 每天开车. And outside of just me, the others around me display them, 太. And thanks to this program, I am comfortable with using my educational and life 在我的日常生活中.
For the educational opportunities, life experiences and lessons, and future possibilities 那 Rosemont and the 研究生 出版 program brought me, I am eternally grateful.
By offering educational opportunities 那 allow for real-world experience, research, knowledge of current practices, and interaction with industry-professionals, the 研究生 出版 Program at Rosemont大学 aims to make the publishing industry 更多的 accessible 对学生、专业人士和公众. 对于参加这个项目的学生来说， courses provide an education 那 covers several areas of publishing, helping them with a career in publishing or a publishing-related field. 这种教育是为 to prepare students to meet the needs of organizations or their own publishing endeavors.
