Welcome to the School of Communication, at Texas Southern University (TSU). I'm Dr. Reza Poudeh, it's great to meet you!

Welcome to Texas Southern University School of Communication

We’ve set one important goal for ourselves: to provide an environment conducive to creative learning and pleasant faculty-student interaction. It’s been quite a journey for faculty and staff to create such a balanced and innovative environment. The former Dean of the School, Dr. James W. Ward, who was appointed Provost of the University in the spring of 2015, worked tirelessly to build the academic foundation that we currently enjoy. We want to continue his efforts to make sure we move forward with innovative programs and new ideas that prepare our students for the current and the future media market.

The convergence of different areas of the communication field creates new opportunities and challenges. Preparing students for such a job market requires new approaches to learning and teaching. Curricula need to be constantly updated and revised. New courses must be designed and new lesson plans prepared to satisfy the needs of the students and the expectations of jobs providers. We understand these challenges and work diligently to bring new technologies and informed media professionals to our school. We’ve introduced new dynamic programs in radio, television and film, and the entertainment and the recording industry in undergraduate level, and beginning Fall 2015, much more robust and progressive concentrations at the graduate level.

We live in a very competitive world and you have many educational institutions to choose from, but, let me assure you that at School of Communication you’ll receive the best possible education for your investment. Our faculty members are among the best in the nation with a variety of expertise. They’re committed to face-to-face interaction with students and mentoring them to become successful communication professionals.

Give us the opportunity to assist you in reaching your career goal. Let us help you experience excellence in achievement.
