English and communication students are blowing away the competition thanks to Cabrini’s newly refocused convergence practicum. With Cathy Yungmann, the associate professor of communications, taking the reins, students are making tremendous advances in the world of communications.

The convergence practicum is comprised of eight seniors and juniors who act as liaisons to the five advanced communication courses in the department. The liaisons serve as managers who strategize and organize as a group to bring together all the forms of media to tell the story of this year’s topic, immigration and globalization.

The advanced classes include journalism, writing for publication (fiction and non-fiction), photography, radio and video. The task of the five advanced classes is to provide creative works on the topic. The goal of the group is to then combine all of the different media features onto a DVD and website during the spring semester.

The program is just another example of the English and communication department’s philosophy of letting their students experience all of the aspects of the department, not just one.
