Dr. Christina Paxman is an Assistant Professor of Broadcasting and Communication Arts. She specializes in Public Relations and Advertising and has taught over 20 different courses across the span of her career. Some of Christina’s current classes include Campaigns & Strategies, Crisis Communication, PR & Media Writing, Community Relations, and Broadcast Advertising Applications. 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.
