Graduate Program | Former Doctoral Students

Indiana University has offered courses in the study of the electronic media since 1938. The Department of English provided the earliest courses; the Department of Radio and Television dates from 1952, and was renamed Department of Telecommunications in 1974. The master's program began in 1952 and the department joined with the Department of Journalism (now School of Journalism) to create the joint doctoral program in Mass Communications in 1963. More than one hundred men and women have earned their Ph.D. degrees through the department, distinguishing themselves in both the academic and professional communities. This compilation provides you not only with a listing of the students who have preceded you, but also a base of potential contacts in the field.
