Department of Communication

The Department of Communication explores communication as a meaning-making process that shapes our identities, relationships, and society. Our major helps students better understand the role of communication in relational, political, and social issues, and prepares them for careers in public service, management, human resources, advocacy, media, education, politics, non-profits, and more.

Welcome to the Department of Communication

“Studying communication at Boise State is a great way to prepare for a variety of careers in a fast-changing world and to connect with other students and faculty who share your passions.”

Dr. Manda Hicks, department chair
