Communication and Media Majors & Programs


Communication Studies

Students working toward a degree in communication studies take courses in intercultural communication, relational communication, organizational and small group communication, and rhetoric. Our students graduate with a greater appreciation and understanding of the vital role communication plays in social change, and what it means to engage the world as participatory citizens while building communication skills that excite employers and graduate school programs.
