Ph.D. in Media and Communication

The Doctor of Philosophy in Media and Communication program offers a broad-based research and theory immersion experience where students gain one-on-one attention from active researchers across a variety of fields including advertising, public relations, journalism, electronic media and communication studies. Specialty sub-areas where we have particular traction are media psychology, health communication, political communication, science communication, Hispanic and international communication, entertainment, media studies, critical/cultural communication and rhetoric.

We are particularly proud of our Center for Communication Research, which houses state-of-the art technology for studying all facets of audience response to media messages—video, audio, online, commercial, informational and more. The CCR contains more than 6,000 square feet of research labs and provides research services to those both within and beyond the Texas Tech community.

While in the program, students enjoy one of the highest level of Ph.D. funding in the nation, and all funded students are given the opportunity to serve as instructors of record and research assistants. Upon graduation, placement has been fantastic and graduates go on to jobs in academe and industry.
