Samantha Bishop

M.A. Student

  • Specialty: Digital Journalism
  • Areas of interest: Multimedia, photojournalism, food, travel, sports journalism
  • Undergrad Degree: Business Management, University of Arizona
  • Hometown: Albany, New York
  • Background/goals: After graduating with a degree in business, I worked at Walt Disney World and the University of Washington. Currently I work in events and communications for the UA Foundation. With my background in business management, I would like to combine both degrees and my experiences to get more into PR, communications and media. I would love in the future to work in the sports or entertainment industry, working PR events or creating content for their media platforms. 
  • Why UA: I chose UA for my undergrad because I love the campus and the big sports school atmosphere. As an employee of the university and an alum now, I am also pretty biased in thinking that this is one of the best institutions to get a degree, especially in journalism.
