THE University of the South Pacific's Journalism School yesterday welcomed its new head, Dr Ian Weber.

Dr Weber, who owns a vast wealth of experience, has taken over from Dr Marc Edge, who left the country earlier this year.

In accepting his new role, Dr Weber said he could not be happier, given that he had worked at the school on a contractual basis last year.

"It is an absolute pleasure to come back, in fact I never wanted to leave. It's really exciting to be back though and I'm looking forward to developing the program here," he said at an afternoon tea hosted by the school's students.

Dr Weber previously worked in Saudi Arabia when he was offered a position by Dr Sudesh Mishra, the head of the USP's School of Language Arts and the Media (SLAM).

"This is a wonderful environment to work in and the staff are extremely supportive. Let's work together to make this one of the best world class programs we possibly can." He said they were considering the possibility of developing gender and media courses.
