Department of Communications


Communication is a powerful process that influences our professional and personal lives, and those who study and understand it equip themselves for a lifetime of opportunities.

Media literacy is the foundation of our philosophy. The Department of Communications understands that a democratic society depends upon an informed citizenry who can critique media practices, analyze media messages, and effectively communicate ideas in an ever-changing media landscape.

We value experiential learning and teach students how to produce mass media content, communicate in professional environments, and conduct academic research. We also encourage them to join our student organizations, network with media professionals, and travel to conferences.

Communication is a dynamic, challenging, and rewarding field, and our faculty and staff are ready to prepare you for it. Thank you for considering us.
