Hispanic Media Initiative

The Hispanic Media initiative is led by NSCM faculty members, Associate Instructor Katie Coronado and Associate Lecturer Erica Rodriguez-Kight, Ph.D. The Initiative covers the classes related to Hispanic/Latino media currently being taught, those in development and the Hispanic/Latino Media certificate. It’s helped foster UCF’s ties with partners abroad in Spanish-speaking countries and between departments internally. It has also helped students get jobs with outside news organizations looking for Spanish-speaking reporters.

The program began as a volunteer effort, which grew into a practicum and then a class. It’s part of a wider initiative to meet the needs of the growing Hispanic/Latinx student population at UCF and respond to an industry need for bilingual professionals in the field. The program also provides all Nicholson students an opportunity to learn about how to work with different cultures.
