Communication and philosophy faculty do more than teach. They research! Their research even enhances the classroom because faculty who actively research stay up on cutting-edge ideas in the profession and share that knowledge with students.
For example, just over this past academic year, faculty in the Department of Communication and Philosophy at Keene State College published several scholarly articles, wrote book chapters and book reviews, and even edited academic journals and books. Research topics range from health communication, feminism, and childlessness to post-Holocaust and digital ethics.
