Featured Intern


Mallory Minor. I am a senior Communication Studies Major with a concentration in Interpersonal Communication. During Summer 2015, I completed my internship in Atlantic City, NJ with One Atlantic, an event planning company.  I worked with event planners, brides, vendors, and staff to execute one-of-a-kind weddings for every couple! We also plan events on a larger scale, such as the 2016 Miss America Pageant luncheon and other large corporation events.  I shadowed four areas of the business including Sales/Marketing, Event Planning, Banquet Managing, and Culinary Execution, which are all crucial communication channels that follow these upscale events from start to finish. From planning one hundred thousand dollar weddings, to planning a wedding for a New York Knicks NBA Dancer, this internship has provided me with experience to help prepare me for my future.

Department Faculty

Eric C. Miller, Ph.D.

Eric C. Miller, Ph.D.Eric C. Miller joined the department in fall 2013 after completing a Ph.D. at the Pennsylvania State University. His research focuses on religious participation in the public square, with special attention to conservative Christian political activism. A regular presenter at regional and national conferences, his writing has appeared in Rhetoric and Public Affairs, the Journal of Communication and Religion, Advances in the History of Rhetoric, and Voices of Democracy.

Dr. Miller teaches CS 321: Argument and Analysis, CS 106: Small Group Communication, and CS 103: Public Speaking, as well as a special topics course, CS 495: Studies in Propaganda. He comes to each of these with a "civic engagement" focus, encouraging students not just to become better speakers, but to think seriously about what they want to say. Students who enroll in any these courses will be encouraged to realize their potential both as thinkers and as citizens.

Additionally, Dr. Miller serves on several departmental committees, represents the department at the University Forum, edits the department newsletter, and serves as co-adviser to BU NORML, the campus chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
