I am a senior Interpersonal Communication Studies major, with a minor in Psychology. During this spring semester, my last semester at Bloomsburg University, I am completing an Internship at Janet Weis Children’s Hospital at Geisinger in Danville in the Patient and Family Centered Care department (P&FFC). P&FFC is focused on creating the best hospital experience for patients and their families. My internship consists of regular communication with the young patients, along with talking to their families about hospital care and resources. I attend valuable meetings with other departments and I have redesigned templates for family events.

Department Faculty

Eric C. Miller, Ph.D.

Eric C. Miller, Ph.D.Eric C. Miller, Ph.D. 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 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. 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.
