Matt Kushin


I’m Dr. Matthew Kushin and I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Communication.

I am the concentration coordinator for the Strategic Communication concentration. I teach all the classes in the concentration, as well as a few others:

Comm 321 Principles of PR, Comm 322 Social Media, Comm 435 Communication Research,Comm 470 Strategic Social Media, Comm 203 Communication & New Media, Comm 335 Writing Across Platforms.

I love teaching and getting to talk and discuss what I teach, which is the intersection of social media and communication campaigns. I also research social media, politics, and civic life. I’ve published in numerous peer-reviewed scholarly journals and have presented to audiences internationally at conferences and via the United States State Department.
