Renowned mass communication scholars have called Murphy Hall home since its doors opened in 1939. For more than 70 years, faculty members have proposed seminal mass communication theories, directed nationally recognized research facilities and edited some of our field's most cited academic journals. As instructors, they have advised graduate students who have gone on to teach and conduct research at top-tier universities. The School's legacy of producing quality researchers continues today.
