Communication professor talks about Catholic values in today's media landscape
Loyola press release - December 6, 2010
Communicating Catholic values in today’s ever-changing media landscape has its challenges, and the Rev. Paul A. Soukup, S.J., Ph.D., will discuss these and the opportunities communication programs face in carrying out their Jesuit mission through their work.
Soukup’s talk takes place Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. in Studio A on the fourth floor of the Communications/Music Complex. It is hosted by Loyola’s College of Social Sciences and the School of Mass Communication and is free and open to the public.
As a priest, professor of communication at a Catholic university, and Loyola University New Orleans Board of Trustees member, Soukup understands what sets Catholic higher education apart from other colleges and universities. His research interests at Santa Clara University include the connection between communication and theology and the use of new technologies in religious communication.
“There are a lot of communications programs out there across the state and region, but what sets us apart is our commitment to our Catholic identity,” School of Mass Communication director Sonya Duhé, Ph.D., said. “We are not content with just providing the basic skills for our students to start and maintain a career. Our focus is about educating the whole person.”
High school students interested in careers in communication are encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact Duhé at 504-865-3450.
