Quinnipiac University

School of Communications Our Work and Research

From investigative reporting to presenting at national conferences, raising awareness of gender bias in the media and creating mobile apps — our alumni, faculty and students are helping to shape the fast-moving edge of the communications frontier. For our students, the combination of theoretical and practical learning they receive at Quinnipiac gives them the skills and opportunities to do good work and the confidence to do the kind of work that redefines industries.

In the field and embracing the spotlight

On campus and off, communications students and faculty are accomplishing great things in their respective disciplines. They break stories both locally and across the globe and develop public relations campaigns for nonprofit organizations. They run student media with the same level of professionalism as established radio and television shows and newspapers.

Finding the right source, angle and word comes naturally to alumni and current students. Like their professors, they are gifted storytellers who use every medium to craft narratives that are compelling and factual. When they combine their efforts, the results have been award-winning pieces of investigative reporting and programming.
