High Point University Professor of Communication Stefan HallHIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 9, 2012 – The Nido R. Qubein School of Communication at High Point University recently hired Dr. Stefan Hall as an associate professor of communication.

In his new position, Hall serves as full-time faculty in the School of Communication for the games and interactive media design track where he teaches a wide variety of games courses within the track. In addition, Hall serves as adviser to the video game club and an academic adviser to students.

“Not only am I excited to join HPU at a dynamic time in its growth, but also I am equally excited to be part of the academic study of games,” says Hall. “As an emergent field within the academy, the students are truly being pioneers of a fantastically powerful medium, and it is a credit to HPU to offer the games and interactive media design option for communication students.”

Before coming to HPU, Hall gained experience as an arts columnist for the Phi Kappa Phi Forum magazine, a technical writer for a software lab and an oral history writer for the NASA Johnson Space Center. Hall’s work has been published in numerous communications, gaming and comic book journals and reviews around the country.

Hall received a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English from Virginia Tech, and a doctorate in American culture studies with a focus in film, media and culture from Bowling Green State University.

In his time at Bowling Green State University, Hall received multiple awards, including the Alma Payne Summer Dissertation Scholarship, the Charles E. Shanklin Award for Research Excellence and the Snook Paper Award.
