Communication Studies

A message from the chair:

...Where the message matters!

The Department of Communication Studies is rich with opportunities to examine the fundamental role that communication plays in the world around us.  Courses in our department will help students build skills and a theoretical understanding to craft effective messages appropriate for specific audiences. Choose from an array of flexible degree programs designed to provide students the ability to tailor their curriculum to their skills and interests. Students are highly encouraged to engage in our dynamic internship program, study abroad, independent research, co-op, and top-notch student organizations.  We believe our experienced faculty, professional production studios, and our calendar of annual networking events will provide students the premier experience necessary to succeed in today's competitive market.

Take the time to explore our website and our selection of  degree programs.
