Coding, development and strategy at Texas State

My name is Rebecca Larson, though I go by Becky or Becks.

Not because I don't like Rebecca, believe me – It's just that hundreds of other good Swedish-heritage families thought, "you know what goes great with Larson? Rebecca."

This made it hard on all of us in terms of finding a memorable nickname. Or an email address. Or a URL. Or a twitter handle. I digress...

I’m Becks, a lifelong student of language and the ways we use it. This pursuit began at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I completed degrees in Linguistics and Japanese Language & Literature.

In its most recent iteration, my passion for language has turned to computer languages, coding and development. I am a graduate student in my final year studying digital media in the school of Journalism and Mass Communication at Texas State University.

My studies have focused on coding proficiency; web maintenance, development and design; database structure; data visualization; and content generation.

Throughout my graduate work I have used my digital projects as a spotlight for women’s and LGBT issues and stories as well as questions concerning diversity, both on local and national scales.

I am currently a professor-of-record at Texas State, teaching multiple sections of the undergraduate course Web Publishing & Online Media Design.
