Jake Detelich earned a Ph.D. in communications media & instructional technology, a master’s degree in adult education & communications technology as well as a bachelor’s degree in communications media from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. His dissertation focused on examining human perceptions of high-fidelity digital audio file resolutions, which he hopes will bring insight and add to the body of knowledge regarding media consumption and its products. Previously, Detelich taught at the Clarion University of Pennsylvania, where he taught courses in various facets of media production, such as video production, audio production, television studio production, and news writing.

He is a musician who has released an album globally via an international record label (Cyclic Law) and provided session musicianship for several major-label bands including Gallowbraid and Visigoth. His passion resides in media production and hopes to expand JWU Charlotte’s media program to include courses in video production, audio production, radio production, and a variety of others.
