Director's Welcome

director Dr. Jefferson Spurlock

Welcome to Troy University's Hall School of Journalism and Communication. I am grateful that you are considering this outstanding program for your education.

College is all about opportunities. Parents see the opportunities that open up for their children who graduate from college.

Students have the opportunity to start making decisions for themselves, to make new, and sometimes, lifelong friends and develop the tools needed to compete in today's society.

The Hall School of Journalism and Communication and Troy University can enhance those opportunities.

From media symposia and workshops to lectures, plays, concerts and Division I athletics, students here can learn outside, as well as inside, the classroom.

And that outside has become much bigger for Troy University. With a growing number of international students, as well as more and more chances to study abroad, the world has opened up for Troy students in ways not possible just a decade ago.

The opportunities don't stop at graduation. The Journalism Alumni Association, for instance, helps graduates with networking and careers. It also provides a sure way to stay connected to Troy University and its graduates.

In short, I believe the Hall School of Journalism and Communication and Troy University are rich with opportunity. And we'd like to share that with you because college is not about missed opportunities but explored opportunities.

I hope that after you explore Troy University's world of journalism and communication education, you will allow us to have the opportunity to work with you in the Hall School of Journalism and Communication.
