Meet Emma Federkeil '20 '24, Director of Communications for the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office🙌

The COVID-19 Pandemic brought Federkeil's senior year to an abrupt halt. This inevitably led her back to Point Park, where she received her M.A. in Broadcast Production, Public Relations, and Advertising & Social Media.

"Point Park’s most valuable asset is its faculty and their ability to connect students with real-world, professional-level experience. Point Park does a great job of showing all of the different possibilities that you can achieve with a degree. During undergrad, I was able to sort out what work environments I liked and ones I didn’t because I tried so many different things. "
