Final Post

At the beginning of this semester, I didn’t know what to expect from this FYO course. Honestly, I chose this course because all my other ones I wanted to get into were closed. Reflecting back on the semester, I’m glad I ended up taking this course. This course made me consider my media usage, reflect on how much I used media, taught me the different types of media there are and gave me an understanding of the effect media has on my future career.  Media includes a range of things like reading a textbook to getting on Facebook. Before this course, I didn’t realize how much media I used in my daily life because I didn’t consider taking notes in class, or reading a textbook as media. I would just think of media as things that are technologically based, for instance, social media. The thing I will take away from the course is, media is so prevalent in our lives that it can influence your future career.
