Ball State faculty bring years of teaching, research, and excitement to the classroom. But just as important, they bring professional experience from public relations, advertising, photojournalism, graphics, news and magazine writing and editing, and digital storytelling.

From their respective roles as advertising creative director, TV news reporter, public relations director, media design consultant, e-magazine editor, textbook author, newspaper copy editor, freelance photojournalist, blogger, and publications director, our professors give you a world of firsthand knowledge about the  careers  you aspire to.
