Journalism alum attributes career success to UC experience

September 20, 2021

Saleha Mohsin, the first student to graduate from the University of Cincinnati’s journalism program, knew from a young age that she wanted to do for a career. “My mom actually told me when I was 15, ‘I think you're going to be a journalist’,” she said. But when she enrolled at UC, the university did not have a journalism program – just a handful of journalism courses housed in the university’s English program. So she enrolled in 2001 first as an undecided student and then as an English major in the College of Arts and Sciences. It was during that first year when Mohsin became involved in the campus newspaper, The News Record.

It is during these formative years that many learn where their interests lay and what future they hope to create for themselves. This was no different for A&S alumna, Jelanah Cheatham.    When Cheatham began at UC in 2014, she felt completely unsure about what career path she hoped to follow. She found herself switching majors multiple times and shifting her post-college aspirations every semester.     After a few semesters of this routine, Cheatham decided Interdisciplinary Studies seemed like a good option and concentrated her curriculum in Math, Marketing and Computer Science.
