I teach undergraduate News and Media classes, along with Mass Communication courses on the graduate level.

Recently, the focus of my teaching has been on the following courses:

  • Feature Writing
  • Newswriting
  • Women, Minorities & Media
  • Women, Minorities & News

I also regularly teach a theory course as a required course in Graduate Studies in Communication. It’s usually offered in the Spring semesters:


  • Theories of Mass Communication





Newswriting Coordinator

To promote a consistency of quality and content among the many sections of Newswriting that are offered each semester, I serve as a liaison with local media professionals and work closely with them when they teach News courses with the School of Communication on a part-time basis.
