The Journalism Department is the founding department and current home of Newspaper Research Journal, a refereed research journal of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

Our faculty and graduate students have presented their research at international, national and regional academic conferences including the annual conferences of International Communication Association, the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication and World Association for Public Opinion Research.

Associate Professor Joe Hayden published two books. The first concerns presidential-press relations— A Dubya in the Headlights: President George W. Bush and the Media (Lexington Books, 2009.) The other is a history examining the role of American journalists at the end of World War I—Negotiating in the Press: American Journalism and Diplomacy (LSU Press, 2010). Dubya has won a glowing review in Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly.

In May 2013 Professor David Arant was visiting professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, where he taught a three-week course, “A Global Ethic for Journalism in the Digital Age.”

In 2013 Professor Rick Fischer was visiting scholar for the master’s program in public relations at Switzerland’s University of Lugano, a program he has worked with for more than a decade.
