Asma Khanom

Doctoral Student

Asma Khanom is a first-year doctoral student and graduate assistant at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Her research interest includes media sociology and an intersection of media management and journalists’ normative responsibilities. Journalism is an everchanging profession, particularly in the digital age and Asma wants to focus on how organizations fail to understand and adopt those changes, how management does not adjust and reform in line with those changes and that affects journalistic professionalism.

Asma is from Bangladesh and started her career as a broadcast journalist in 2007. She served as a broadcast journalist for over twelve years in several national television networks in Bangladesh and countries include Germany, and the USA. Both in the USA and Europe, she learned how a first world country’s newsroom function. She’s also a Fulbright Scholar of US Department of State. Before joining MU, she earned her second master’s in journalism from the University of Oklahoma. Asma obtained her bachelor and first master’s in mass communication from the University of Rajshahi, Bangladesh.

She is looking forward to making connection between her professional expertise and academic exploration.
