Annenberg School for Communication

Annenberg School for Communication

Annenberg Professor Marwan M. Kraidy studies the effect of exposure to western culture as seen in Middle East uprisings like those of the Arab Spring, and the expanding global influence of Middle East media like the Al Jazeera network.

 

Devoted to furthering the understanding of the role of communication in public life through education, research, and policy studies, the Annenberg School for Communication (ASC)’s faculty and students address important global, national, and local communication vehicles and issues. In the 50 years since its founding, the Annenberg School has remained at the forefront of media studies, committed to cutting-edge research, education, and service regarding the form, content, and consequences of existing and emerging media.

Faculty: ASC's success is due in no small part to its eminent faculty. Their expert views are in high demand, and they remain dedicated teachers and mentors, working closely with our graduate and undergraduate students both in and outside of the classroom.

Major Centers and Programs: Facilitating the research, teaching, and service missions of ASC are our major centers and programs, which include the Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science, the Center for Global Communication Studies, the Scholars Program in Culture and Communication, the Annenberg Public Policy Center, the Project for Advanced Research in Global Communication, the Network Dynamics Group, and the Communication Neuroscience Lab. Collectively they produce and disseminate important scholarly and applied research, receive grants and consultancies, garner major awards, provide research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students, bring in speakers and visiting scholars, hold important workshops and conferences, and enable Annenberg to graduate leading communication scholars, educators, and practitioners.
