Graduate Student Organizations

The Rhetoric Society of America’s Graduate Student Chapter at Georgia State University establishes a space for graduate students to foster the study of rhetoric. RSA at GSU seeks to cultivate a community among rhetoric scholars across disciplines and is committed to promoting rhetoric and civic engagement at Georgia State University. RSA at GSU is open to all graduate students, faculty, and staff members interested in the study of rhetoric.

RSA at GSU hosts semester events such as rhetoric colloquiums, which bring together members of the Communication department and English department to talk about issues facing the study of rhetoric and to create community between departments.

All current graduate students in the Department of Communication at Georgia State University are automatically members of the Communication Graduate Student Association. The CGSA programs events designed to further the academic, social, and professional goals of our graduate students. We provide opportunities for social interaction and academic growth through coffee hours, study groups, peer review of papers, professional development, and colloquiums.  CGSA also acts as the contact group for voicing student input and concerns to members of the faculty and administration when they affect the group as a whole.  Representing a diverse set of students, CGSA seeks to improve the experience of all graduate students in the department.
Georgia News Lab: The Georgia News Lab is a collaborative investigative reporting initiative.  It is a partnership between Georgia State University, the University of Georgia, Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV.  The Lab’s goals are to train young investigative reporters, produce high-quality public service news stories, and bring added diversity to newsrooms.  Through this collaboration, university educators and professional journalists train students as real-world watchdog reporters.  Students from participating schools receive practical, hands-on training, learning to use documents, databases, digital tools and interviews to conduct in-depth investigations of powerful people and institutions.  They meet with investigative reporters, government experts, data specialists, multimedia journalists, videographers and other professionals to learn specialized reporting methods and techniques for delivering their stories across platforms.  Through this intensive year-long process, the Georgia News Lab hopes to foster a new cohort of investigative journalists who can contribute to their communities by producing in-depth, multimedia reports on issues of significant public interest.
