  • Program Emerging Media

Maryland native Lauren Barrett earned her Bachelor of Arts in English and Writing from Gettysburg College, and a Master’s in Education in School Counseling at Loyola University Maryland. She spent seven years as a career counselor for students with learning differences, but found herself at a career crossroads due to her interest in media and technology. She enrolled in Loyola’s Emerging Media Program, and says, “I am looking to use my Emerging Media degree and knowledge to explore research around how career development processes are changing as a result of emerging technologies.” Lauren currently serves as an assistant director for student career development at Johns Hopkins University, and she hopes to use her degree to incorporate new emerging media technologies into her coaching. “These are the skills and knowledge that comprise the future of our world, and they are important for everyone to know,” she says. “They are transferable to any industry and will help you to speak and act more confidently as technology continues to evolve.”

St. Ignatius’ most famous quote, 'Go forth and set the world on fire,' has always struck me as particularly poignant and inspiring. For me, that embodies the spirit of a Loyola education. Don't be afraid to explore, try, fail, and try again.
