CURRICULUM FOCUS
University of Florida Communication and Media Program
UDC Contributor

There’s no doubt that technology has shaped the way news is presented and received in the 21st century, and the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications is committed to keeping up with the times. Its innovative digital laboratories include everything from a network of desktop and laptop computers to sophisticated data analysis and audio and digital video editing equipment. The College is equally committed, though, to ensuring students have the solid academic training necessary to be reliable, ethical professionals. Undergraduate studies are conducted through four departments: advertising, journalism, public relations, and telecommunication. The College also offers campus-based and online master’s programs, a joint MA/JD with UF’s Levin College of Law, and a Ph.D. in mass communication. Students often enrich their classroom studies with hands-on experiences ranging from internships in newsrooms and PR departments across the country to working on campus staples such as the Orange & Blue magazine and the Independent Florida Alligator. The College’s Division of Multimedia Properties includes seven television and radio stations, and more than 300 students work in news, sports, production, advertising, and other capacities each semester.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
University of Florida Healthcare Program
UDC Contributor

Contributing to the University of Florida’s reputation as a leader in health professions is the nationally ranked audiology program. UF is one of the first institutions to offer the Doctor of Audiology degree both on-campus and through distance learning in order to serve both traditional students and working professional audiologists. Students attending classes on the Gainesville campus benefit from access to state-of-the-art equipment and well-known healthcare facilities, including the speech and audiology center at Shands Hospital. Off-campus students receive instruction through a combination of real-time lectures with the course instructor via online chat room, recorded lectures, virtual clinics, traditional readings, Internet postings, and online discussion groups and chat rooms. During spring break, audiology students have the opportunity to travel with faculty to the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico to provide free hearing healthcare to the underprivileged. In addition to the Doctor of Audiology program – which focuses on training professionals who can serve individuals and communities in the detection, prevention, diagnosis, and management of hearing and balance disorders – UF also offers a Ph.D. in audiology and speech-language pathology that educates students to become researchers.

U I think what makes the University of Florida so special is the sense of camaraderie on the campus. I know that most people will say that about their own alma mater, but I truly think
