Apr. 23, 2018 – Dr. Brian MacAuley has been teaching as part of Newbury’s School of Arts and Sciences for two years. He is an Assistant Professor of Communication, teaching classes to help students understand media history, theory, research, ethics and law, according to the Bachelor of Arts in Communication mission statement.
Dr. MacAuley said, “My favorite class to teach is Media and Modern Society which looks at topical issues in contemporary media from several perspectives. The students truly relate to the subject matter, the topics make for great class discussions, and it is the course that best reflects how I think about media.”
He also explained he is excited to start working on introducing a course on documentary film.
Newbury provides a small class environment, which Dr. MacAuley enjoys. He said, “I have taught at major research universities, state schools and other private colleges, but there is nothing quite like the dynamic here at Newbury. When you really know the students in your program because you see them nearly every day, you can make sure that they are getting the most out of their time here.”
Dr. MacAuley earned his Bachelor’s Degree from University of Massachusetts, Amherst; his Master’s Degree from Suffolk University; and his PhD from Penn Sate.
