Our faculty members are veteran mass media professionals and nationally-recognized scholars. They are former and current newspaper journalists, editors, TV producers, public relations practitioners and web designers. More than just teachers and researchers, our faculty members connect one-on-one with their students.
Utah State faculty have led JCOM students on study abroad trips to Ethiopia to understand the role of foreign news correspondents, and forged partnerships with local news organizations to help them secure professional experiences before going on the job market.
"I feel appreciated in the JCOM department. Professors seemed vested in my success and gave me many opportunities to actualize my goals. I was connected to internships and ongoing connections to write reviews for concerts and festivals, including Sundance and Utah Arts Festival. I was able to write press releases for Utah State Public Relations, host my own show for Aggie Radio, and be published in newspapers, magazines and online."
