In previous research, I have mainly focused on minority hiring at broadcast radio and television stations in the U.S. I have studied minority hiring at radio stations as well as television stations and combined research concerning the two mediums. A component of this research is to look at minority graduation rates at universities and colleges that have Mass Communication departments. I also have delved into electronic mass media transnational companies and their influence on a global scale. My research question was to ascertain if they are trying to Westernize other parts of the world or are these transnational companies (TNCs) in the business for their bottom line and stockholders. Another area of related research has been to study diversity in the classroom and how it affects students. It has been found that teaching diversity across the curriculum does have a positive effect but only if there are a high number of minority students involved in the classes. I have tried different approaches to teaching diversity in my classrooms to study which ones are most effective.
