At St. Joe’s, we’ve been busy building a new kind of Communication Studies department.

With talented faculty, a supportive administration, and motivated students – we’ve turned our little start-up into a thriving digital media studies outpost, with plans to hire every year into the foreseeable future.

This season we are hiring our chair.

This person will have the extraordinary opportunity to build something great.

We are looking for someone who shares our vision – someone who wants to make a difference.

Our chair will not only lead a passionate group of thinkers and doers into the future, but will help to extend our work into the community of Philadelphia, fostering innovation and positive social change.

If this sounds interesting, we would love to hear to you.

Here are our four remakes:
