My name is Susanne Jones and I
am an associate professor at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in the Department of Communication Studies. My research focuses on interpersonal communication processes, social support, and emotion regulation.

I completed my degrees at Arizona State University, Indiana University, and Georgia Southern University.
I am originally from Hamburg, Germany. I also grew up for a little bit in Swakopmund and Windhoek, both cities in Namibia.

I serve as departmental Director of Undergraduate Studies for AY 2017-18. So please email me with undergraduate questions (see left sidebar for email).

For your advising needs regarding degree requirements, please make an appointment with our communication studies advisors here.
