Dr. Larry Bodkin received his Ph.D. in Communication Theory and Research from FSU in Spring 2017.  During his doctoral career at FSU, he taught a wide variety of courses, including courses in public speaking, communication theory, professional and business communication, public relations and non-profit organizational communication in both face-to-face and online formats.  His main doctoral research interest was the impact of communication on group decision-making effectiveness.

Larry believes in the power of critical thinking to pull the very best out of each student and that the job of the successful teacher is to facilitate and encourage that type of thinking.
