About the Program
The mission of the Department of Communication Studies is to prepare students for civic participation in an increasingly complex world that requires sophisticated practical, critical, and theoretical understandings of human communication.
The department offers coursework and degree programs that focus on the history, theory, and critical evaluation of human and mediated communication.
Communication majors secure employment in a variety of fields after graduation including journalism, sales, advertising, public relations, media development, community advocates and broadcasting.
Some graduates pursue advanced degrees at the masters or doctoral level. The department offers a Minor in Communication Studies to students majoring in other disciplines.
Four concentrations are available to students majoring in Communication Studies: Broadcasting, Media Studies, Speech Communication and Public Relations. Students may also choose to minor in Communication Studies. Students may also take a double concentration.
