Profile

I am an Assistant Professor of Journalism and Citizen Media at Kennesaw State University, Georgia, USA. I received my B.A. in Mass Communication from Bayero University Kano, Nigeria, my Master's of Science degree in Communication from the University of Louisiana, USA, and my Ph.D. in Public Communication from Georgia State University, Atlanta, USA.

I am a recipient of the Nigerian Television Authority Prize for the Best Graduating Student in Mass Communication, the University of Louisiana's Outstanding Master's Student in Communication award, and Georgia State University's top Ph.D. student award in communication.

I'd worked as a reporter, news editor, presidential researcher/speech writer, and journalism lecturer in Nigeria before relocating to the United States.

I write two weekly newspaper columns: "Notes from Atlanta," which comes out every Saturday in the Weekly Trust and "Politics of Grammar," which appears every Sunday in the Sunday Trust. My columns are simultaneously published on my blog: www.farooqkperogi.com
