Many current students and department alumni consider the faculty a primary strength of UTC’s Communication Department. Faculty members bring to the classroom extensive professional experience and advanced academic credentials. Faculty members have worked for newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations and networks, and in public relations and advertising departments.
Four of seven faculty members hold either endowed chairs or honorary titles based on their teaching, research and service. All full-time communication faculty are involved in student advising, campus-related organizations and professional and community service.
