POE: Multimedia Journalism

I came to Juniata not exactly sure of what I wanted to do, I just had a passion for social media, theater and storytelling. The IMA department found me and allowed me to realize that I could transfer my love for sharing stories in a digital, creative format. By being exposed to so much through my IMA classes, I found my passion for TV journalism. Despite not having a journalism program, my POE has set me up to be a self sufficient TV reporter right out of college. I feel confident filming, editing and talking in front of a camera every day through my role at WNEP-TV because I got so much video experience at Juniata.

POE: Multimedia Communication Design 

I have always had a passion for art and design but I never considered it to be in my career path. However, the IMA Program at Juniata College inspired me to go for what I love and enjoy doing. This program helped me to find my creative self and explore the world of creativity even more. Even as an international student from Nepal I felt right at home here at Juniata.

POE:  Pre K-4 Education with a Secondary Emphasis in Integrated Media Arts

I chose to come to Juniata for its small, close-knit environment that allows relationships to easily be built among students and staff. I also was drawn to the diversity in POEs. I initially came to Juniata as an Undecided/Exploratory student with not much of an idea of where I wanted to go. I spent my first year taking math courses because math has always been a subject I enjoyed. Freshman year is also when I took Principles of Digital Media and enjoyed what the course had to offer. But, teaching was always in the back of my mind as a possibility.

POE: Design and Visual Storytelling 

I came to Juniata to study in the IMA program because of the real-world experiences that I would gain working with community partners, informing me of how I would work with clients in the future. So far, I have been challenged artistically and I have gained leadership skills, but also collaborative skills. The IMA department also allowed me to explore and experiment in my creative work and I have been able to learn more about my artistic style and vision.

POE: Digital Media Storytelling with Human Behavior

I came to Juniata for the multidisciplinary approach to learning in the Integrated Media Arts department. The IMA program gave me the opportunity to meet and work with a variety of individuals with who I would, later on, be able to collaborate, as well as teach me how to use a diverse range of programs and equipment that I never had the experience of using before. As a freshman, the IMA program seemed like the program that would strengthen my professional and creative skills. I wanted to be part of a community where I could also learn from other creative individuals.

POE: Graphic Communication

I chose to come to Juniata for the ability to individualize my education. I was able to incorporate my passions while also adding new ones due to the exposure to multiple areas of design and communication. I also chose Juniata for the family environment. I was always surrounded by people who care for and support one another that is truly hard to find.

POE: Writing and Visual Storytelling

I chose the IMA program because I am passionate about many different types of art and media, so this program allowed me to dabble and experiment in different aspects of design, filmmaking, photography, and even writing. By individualizing my program of emphasis, I was able to pursue two disciplines: filmmaking and writing. The two disciplines support one another very well, so I feel that I have had a great experience learning from both my writing and IMA courses. And I knew I couldn’t just focus on one of my passions, so I chose to do both. Through this experience, I was able to hone my talents as a visual storyteller, and even branch out to do documentaries and educational videos. The IMA program at Juniata allowed me to be creative in different types of media, and I feel like a very well-rounded creative due to the program’s flexibility.
