About Dr. Luis C Almeida

I am the Interim Department Chair of Mass Communications at Claflin University, a top-ranked HBCU located in Orangeburg, South Carolina, as an expert in creative media production and photojournalism. My teaching work involves applying different media technologies to produce digital content, primarily for new media outlets.

I hold professional certifications in industry-standard media creation tools, including Final Cut Pro (FCPX),  Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Audition, as well as Logic Pro X. I have a record of helping my students to produce top quality contemporary media content as well as publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals and serving my communities above myself.       

I’ve served as the President of the Cleveland Media Association.
