The Board of Trustees at Howard University is moving forward with plans to create a new PhD program in Communications. The university is also working to develop two new undergraduate programs as well. The program is designed to help the students at Howard University compete in the changing landscape of American media. The programs will begin taking students in the fall of 2013.
A Committee of the Future chaired by Dr. Bishetta Merritt, professor and chair of the department of Radio, Television and Film, helped to organize the plan. The university also used the skills of a panel put together for the express purpose of laying out a strategy for the programs.
