MC listserv

You are invited to subscribe to the listserv for the Media & Communication doctoral program at Temple University.

A listserv allows subscribers to read and post messages to a “list” of e-mail addresses. Over 225 M&C students, faculty, alumnae/i, and others use the listserv to:

  • Distribute news of interest to the M&C community, including details about M&C and other course offerings, funding opportunities, calls for papers, job opportunities, research opportunities, upcoming and completed exams and proposal/dissertation defenses, alumnae/i activities, social events, and more
  • Discuss topics of interest to the M&C community, including news events related to the media; news media coverage of health, politics, science, etc.; ideas for studies or papers; and much more
  • Share information, answer questions, and solve problems. Subscribers are encouraged to post questions concerning M&C courses, schedules, and policies; teaching and grading dilemmas; research design and implementation issues; how to write successful grant proposals; library and other resources; interesting Internet web sites; where to purchase and how to operate computer hardware and software; and much more, and
  • Encourage a sense of community for everyone associated with M&C.
