The Department of Communication fosters an integrated approach to the study and practice of communication and emphasizes the fundamental role communication plays in virtually all human endeavors.

In addition to the Master of Arts in Communication, the department offers two graduate certificates (Public Relations and Communication Teaching) and five undergraduate majors (communication studies, electronic media and broadcasting, journalism, media informatics, and public relations). Our courses promote an understanding of communication principles and theories as well as an awareness of the personal, social, psychological, and cultural impacts of communication. Our courses also emphasize situational analysis, issue identification, problem solving, message construction, storytelling, and effective presentation.
