Dr. Nicole Haggard: Hold on to what matters

Faces of the Mount

Dr. Nicole Amber Haggard is a Film and Media, Communications and Social Justice professor at Mount Saint Mary’s University, Los Angeles. As a USC graduate of American Studies, she focuses on women empowerment and representation in the media.

Dr. Haggard’s famous phrase in most of her classes is “Why does this matter?” Her goal is for students to learn about what they’re passionate about and most importantly, learn more about themselves.“We keep it real and we have fun because we discuss topics on what matters to them.”

“If my student can learn more about themselves and their particular worldview through the eyes and ears of my classroom, then I have succeeded.”
