Communication Studies

We Are Called To Train Ethical and Effective Communicators.

Our discipline is grounded in rhetorical and scientific principles and is guided by the need to make communicative choices that are artful, ethical, and effective. Students who major in communication studies are concerned with: interpersonal relationships, mass media, public advocacy and social influence, group and organizational dynamics, and intercultural dimensions of communication.

Prospective majors should meet with a departmental adviser as early as possible to design an approved major program, preferably by the end of the sophomore year.
