LinkedIn Group Created for Latino Media Studies Program

Dear all,

We have created a new group on LinkedIn for students, alumni and friends of the UT College of Communication Latino Media Studies program, mainly to help you connect with each other around common interests, sharing information and resources related to academic or professional issues in Latino media and communication. If you know of others who are active in the field professionally, who can either contribute or benefit from their association with this group, feel free to invite them to join. The program is restricted to students in the College of Communication, but the conversation is OPEN to all.

See you online!
