Department of Communication

About the Department

The Department of Communication is dedicated to understanding the role and enhancing the quality of communication processes and systems in relationships, organizations, and society. We explore communication as a social, meaning-making phenomenon across many perspectives and contexts. Our faculty members develop and apply varied theoretical perspectives to help better understand communication’s role in current social, political, and societal issues.

Students earning a BA in Communication are encouraged to pursue minors or certificates in complementary areas of study as well as participate in internships or practicum opportunities to enhance their educational experiences.
