Juliet Stantz has taught at DePaul since 2008. She considers herself a communication generalist, with interests in public relations/advertising, media and society, gender studies, organizational communication and research methodology. Currently she enjoys teaching Advertising and Society (PRAD 335), and multiple sections of Research Methods for the Public Relations and Advertising Professional (PRAD 291, and the graduate version, PRAD 585). Teaching Research Methods continually reaffirms her love of inquiry as students choose stimulating issues to investigate and the world never ceases to put forth studies and claims that are ripe for critical analysis.
She also has taught organizational communication, public speaking and business and Professional Communication at DePaul. Whatever the course, she strives to keep her classes interactive and centered on hands-on practice. Her greatest satisfaction comes from seeing students become empowered by the insights and skills they are gaining and applying to their lives. Juliet sees DePaul as the perfect arena for pursuing a life of wisdom, compassion and service, with every quarter providing a new opportunity to learn and grow with her students. There is no other community of learners of which she would rather be a part.
Juliet has her master's in communication studies from Northwestern University, where she also completed coursework toward the doctorate. Her bachelor's is in journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before returning to academia, she worked in journalism and public relations in the Chicago area.
