Meet the Department: Dr. Bryan Denham

April 1, 2021

Although we may be limited in our interactions, we definitely do not want to be strangers. Our Meet the Department series hopes to introduce you to our faculty and staff that support our undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Communication.

Meet: Dr. Bryan Denham

Dr. Bryan Denham

 The next faculty member we would like to introduce you to is Dr. Bryan Denham, Professor of Sports Communication.

Dr. Denham has been a proud member of Clemson’s Department of Communication for the past 20 years. While at Clemson, he has studied performance enhancing substance abuse in sport, how the media portrays the issues, how the portrayal by the media can affect policy, and how the policies sometimes work and sometimes do not, all in great depth. Additionally, Dr. Denham recently published the faculty open forum “On the Cancelation of Men’s Track and Field at Clemson”.

Dr. Denham hosts highly participatory discussion based classes. By doing so, Dr. Denham not only keeps his students engaged, but also enables others in the class to hear different perspectives on sports issues. I had the pleasure of experiencing this first hand in Dr. Denham’s Sports Media Criticism class and found the technique to be very effective. In order to succeed in Dr. Denham’s classes, one must participate and engage with the class as well as respond in great depth to essay exams.
