Thesis: Putting the Community Back into Community Networks: A Content Analysis
I was looking for a communication program that provided opportunities to explore cutting edge communication technologies. I found RIT's Communication MS offered courses that focused on advances in communication technology, which really made the program attractive to me. Today I often work with people in engineering and computer science on research, and I think those collaborative opportunities have been possible because I was in a program that encouraged interdisciplinary approaches to research.
