In Ball State’s journalism department, you’ll find our faculty are a large, inclusive group with both
traditionally trained educators and former journalism and strategic
communications professionals. While our faculty represent a broad spectrum of
expertise, with diverse points of views and approaches, they all
share the same goal: to give each student the finest journalism education
Theory and application, in perfect balance.
Our faculty understand the
interdependence between theory and application. One informs the other, and
neither is sufficient on its own. This is why we focus on immersive
learning, unified media, and student opportunities as integrated parts of your education.
We focus on mentoring and advising you.
With our faculty, you’ll get a well-rounded education that
leaves no relevant topic uncovered and no perspective unexplored. More
importantly, our faculty focus on you. Whether they’re advising your work with
a student media outlet or agency, or they’re working with you on an immersive
learning project, you will have plenty of interaction with our professors.
