The Department of Communication offers a major in Communication, with a concentration in Mediated Communication and Communication Studies and minors in Communication and Journalism.
The mission of the Communication major is to help students develop an understanding of communication theories and humanistic approaches to communication, and to promote the development of skills in public and interpersonal communication. The Communication major provides a foundation for graduate studies, or for careers in diverse areas like mass media, public relations, journalism, politics, law, education and other related fields.
The 11-course curriculum allows students to create their programs of study according to their academic and career interests from courses within the Department, and upon consultation with their advisor, from complementary courses outside the Department.
