The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication offers a student-centered, scholarly research-oriented Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in journalism and mass communication.
Students study in the Cronkite School’s state-of-the-art journalism complex on ASU’s Downtown Campus in the heart of Phoenix, the nation’s fifth-largest city.
Students are expected to have professional media experience along with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism, mass communication or a related field. Students without master’s degrees may be admitted but will be required to complete additional course work.
Students will be mentored by nationally known scholars who have professional experience in broadcasting, media, strategic communications and public relations. Key interests of Cronkite faculty include both qualitative and quantitative methods on topics such as Spanish-language media, gender and race, sex and the media, First Amendment theory, popular culture, newsroom culture, international communication and history.
The Cronkite School’s Ph.D. program is one of the few in the Southwest. Visit the school, tour the campus and learn more. Contact Dawn Gilpin, director of research and doctoral studies, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
