Positions Held by Recent Ph.D., M.A., and B.A. Graduates

Assistant Professor, USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism

Mike Ananny, Ph.D. Communication Theory and Research ’11

“Stanford’s Communication department gave me the chance to develop strong working relationships with world-class interdisciplinary faculty and students. They provided the freedom and support I needed to follow my interests, design research projects, learn the power of thoughtful teaching, and develop a network of friends and colleagues who continue to provide inspiration and mentorship.”

Labor & Employment Reporter, POLITICO Pro

Marianne LeVine, M.A. Journalism ’14

“I am incredibly grateful for my experience with the Stanford Graduate Program in Journalism. I came to the program with very little journalism experience outside of writing for my college paper. Thanks to the program’s small size and emphasis on local beat reporting, I improved my writing skills and my ability to find stories. Most importantly, the program’s focus on public affairs reporting gave me the best introduction to policy reporting I could have hoped for. The level of mentoring I received from my professors truly made all the difference.”

Assistant Account Executive, BBDO Worldwide

Jordan Richard-Craven, B.A. Communication ’12

“I learned how to analyze media, write in a concise manner, understand news articles, and express the effects of media through written and verbal communication – crucial skills I have used working in advertising. I routinely analyze competitive advertising, write emails to clients, report on energy politics, and write a newsletter on the energy industry, all for which Comm 104, Comm 108, Comm 1B, and Magazine Journalism prepared me very well.”

YouTube Media Manager, Google

Beauram Hur, B.A. Communication ’11

“My passion for social media, which was cultivated by studying communication at Stanford, helped me get my dream job at YouTube to work with advertising media studies.”
