Research & Centers
Research and outreach serve a vital role in the mission of the Hubbard School of Journalism & Mass Communication. Mass communication research centers on how people use the media and its effects on society. This research tackles a number of leading issues, including digital innovations, advertising effects, crisis communications, and publishing.
Through the Silha Center for the Study of Media Ethics and Law, programming and research focus on freedom and fairness and examine ethical responsibilities and legal rights of the mass media in a democratic society.
The School also has robust research facilities, including a focus group room, eye-tracking software, and a mass communication library.
