School of Journalism Research

Since its inception more than a century ago, the School of Journalism at the University of Texas has become a premier professional and research outlet for aspiring journalists.

Research Produced by Journalism Graduate Students

When students enroll in the Journalism PhD and Master’s research and theory programs at the University of Texas at Austin, they join a community of scholars committed to conducting, presenting and publishing ethical research.

While the research may begin as a classroom assignment or collaboration with faculty or fellow graduate students, the end product is usually a convention paper, journal article, book chapter or book.

Please browse through the convention papers and publications produced by our PhD and Master’s research and theory students. These publications are organized by year.
