Greg Hoplamazian, Ph.D.
- Academic Focus Communication, Emerging Media
Greg Hoplamazian, Ph.D., associate professor of communication, works to understand what his students are going through—in and out of the classroom—to promote a positive learning environment. “Whether I am teaching students research concepts or how to analyze an advertising message, developing a habit of critical thinking is something I believe will serve my students well after they leave Loyola,” he says. Dr. Hoplamazian earned his master’s degree and his Ph.D. in Communication from the Ohio State University. His research focuses on media psychology and understanding how people process advertising messages, with an emphasis on the impact of social identities such as ethnicity and gender. Dr. Hoplamazian, who began teaching at Loyola in 2011, says communication majors at Loyola develop practical skills through hands-on experience: “The communication capstone course is a valuable experience for our students. They work with real clients and develop professional media content, which helps propel them beyond Loyola.”
