Get to Know a Professor: Luiz Duarte
To help with choosing classes, rather than waiting a week, here’s another adjunct professor profile. This time you’ll meet Dr. Luiz Duarte. He holds a BA in Journalism from the University of São Paulo, a MA in Telecommunication Managment from Michigan State University, and a Ph.D. in Mass Media also from MSU.
Communication is what got us from the caves to today. If you ever visit Epcot’s first ride on the giant ball you got a a good sense of how Communications technologies are so relevant to everything we are and do.
What has been your favorite course to teach?
I liked teaching about the history of communication technologies because there are so many interesting anecdotes to tell.
What’s the best course you’ve ever taken in or related to the field of Communication?
My great professor Thomas Muth from MSU used to provoke some animated discussions on Telecommunication policies and that was very interesting and useful for learning the multiple aspects of legislation, with winners and losers.
Do you have any interesting hobbies?
I am traveling throughout Latin America extensively these days for work and there is no time for much else.
