Meet Dr. Christina Paxman from Minot State University

Speaking of Class, meet Christina Paxman, dept coordinator of Broadcasting & Professional Communication at MSU.

I love my interviews with Minot State University personnel and this one with Christina Paxman is just another great example of what a terrific asset MSU is to the Minot community.

Ph.D., University of Iowa M.A., California State University, Long Beach B.A., Western Washington University Dr. Christina Paxman is an Assistant Professor of Broadcasting and Professional Communication. She specializes in Public Relations and Communication and has taught 30 different courses across the span of her career. Some of Christina’s current classes include PR Campaigns & Strategies, Communication Law & Ethics, Gender Communication, and Advanced Public Speaking. Much of Christina’s teaching is complemented by her experience in the private sector, including the time she spent working at Walt Disney World and, later, for a multinational aerospace corporation. Christina routinely incorporates Service Learning opportunities into her classes so students can partner with local organizations to gain professional experience and make connections to course material. As such, students have helped plan and promote events, launch and manage social media campaigns, and serve as novice communication consultants for a variety of organizations. Christina’s research has been published in a variety of scholarly journals, including Communication Teacher, Communication Research Reports, Journal of Family Communication, Women & Health, and Environment & Behavior. Additionally, the results of a team study that Christina worked on were cited in a Wall Street Journal article titled “New Help for Homesick Students on Campus”. Christina currently serves as the Editor for the Journal of Communication, Speech & Theatre Association of North Dakota, which recently received the 2019 Outstanding Journal Award from the Central States Communication Association.

Minot Today is broadcast over the air on two Minot radio stations every Friday. You can find it on 106.9 FM at 12:15 (Noonish) and again at 4:45 on 1320 AM. Of course I always post the broadcast as a Podcast here as well as my Podcast site at Pod-O-Matic.
