Department of Communication

   

We focus on communication processes and their effects on individuals and organizations. The Department of Communication studies how we create, distribute, and interpret messages through media systems, while gaining hands-on experience in crafting and publishing persuasive messages.

In the Department of Communication, we offer four majors: communication science and social inquiry, multimedia journalism, public relations, and sports media and analytics. You will have the opportunity to work hands-on in our state-of-the-art digital studio, to intern with national firms, and work directly with clients.
