Sharon Albert Honore, PhD
College of Liberal Arts
Dr. Sharon Albert Honore is an Assistant Professor and Chair of the Journalism and Mass Communication program in the College of Liberal Arts at Ashford University. She was the first African American to earn a Doctor of Philosophy in Mass Communication and Journalism from University of Iowa. She also holds a Master of Arts in African American World Studies from University of Iowa, a Master of Arts in Mass Communication from Southern University A&M College, and a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication from Southern University. Dr. Albert Honore has taught at the college level for over two decades, working at University of Iowa, Strayer University, University of Phoenix, and several historical black colleges and universities. Based on her own experiences as an adult learner, Dr. Albert Honore firmly believes that all students, regardless of age, look for role models to help them learn. She says, “I would like my students to realize that there are more similarities between us than differences. Every day, and each class session, I open my mind and heart in an effort to learn from them as they learn from me. I work hard to challenge students to be critical thinkers and express curiosity beyond their time in the classroom.” Dr. Albert Honore earned her graduate degrees while working as a graduate research assistant and serving as a mother to seven children, all while her husband was also in school. She recently relocated from Augusta, GA to Denver, CO.
