Mass communications professor named among top 50 in the country
Mass Communication professor Dr. Ginger Carter Miller has been named one of the top 50 journalism professors in the United States.
Miller also represents one of only two University System of Georgia faculty members to make the top 50, published earlier this week by journalismdegree.org.
“It’ s always humbling to receive recognition for the work I love so much,” Miller said. “After looking at the list, I’m truly honored to be chosen. I know and have worked with many of the professors on the list. It’s an outstanding group.”
The online journalism site selected the professors after researching nominees. The selection process included professors’ student reviews, experience, expertise, web presence and nominations from peers.
Miller received a 2011 national teaching award presented by the national Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). The award recognized her commitment to connecting Georgia College public relations students to the community through service learning projects.
A 20 plus-year member of the AEJMC, Miller previously earned the organization’s 2005 “National Small Programs Interest Group Teacher of the Year” award. She also received Georgia College’s 2000 “Excellence in Teaching” award for her work with students in public relations.
Miller also is a member of Public Relations Society of America and serves as a Georgia Public Relations Student Society of America adviser liaison for the College Relations Committee.
Miller earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Georgia State University. She earned a master’s degree in speech communication with a concentration in public relations from Auburn University and a doctorate of philosophy with an emphasis in journalism history from University of Southern Mississippi.
