Recruit The Best and Brightest Doctoral Students

The Communication Theory and Research doctoral program at Florida State University offer students the training, facilities, and mentorship necessary to become independent and original scholars. Graduates of our program give back to the academy and related industries by taking positions at research-based institutions within the communication discipline, consultancies, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental agencies.

Our students are working alongside our world-renowned faculty in multiple areas of significance, including communication for social justice and change, persuasive health and environmental messaging, multicultural communication, and marketing, critical cultural and rhetorical studies, entertainment and positive media psychology, and new media technology.  

Your support will help ensure the School can recruit and fund doctoral students eager to contribute to the scholarly work for which the School of Communication is known and respected.
