Dr. Peter Gloviczki serves as an Assistant Professor of Communication in the Communication, Language, Literature, and Religion Department at Coker College. He earned a PhD and an MA in Mass Communication from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Gloviczki also holds a BA from St. Olaf College. His areas of specialization include innovation in a changing media environment and qualitative methods.
Although Dr. Gloviczki has been a member of the Coker faculty for just four years, he has already distinguished himself for his commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. He is known among students and colleagues as an instructor dedicated to innovative and engaging pedagogy, as well as an instructor who seeks to make the most effective and appropriate use of technology for each course he instructs.
Dr. Gloviczki has also proven himself as capable of being an engaged scholar at a teaching-centric institution. He has served on multiple editorial boards and has presented and published multiple papers on topics including media, social media, memorialization, and even baseball.
In October 2016, Dr. Gloviczki was awarded the Monica Pombo Award for Excellence in Teaching from the Carolinas Communication Association. According to Coker Provost Tracy Parkinson, “Peter is a model for our students and his colleagues in his relentless commitment to improving his craft. Perhaps more importantly, however, Peter demonstrates that same level of commitment when it comes to his efforts to see that each and every one of his students reaches his or her potential.”
