Why Communication Studies?

Communication Studies students explore the complex ways people produce meaning through interaction and symbolic expression. Learning emphasizes ethical communication, critical thinking, civic engagement and understanding the role cultural diversity plays in all forms of communication. Coursework covers three broad and overlapping areas of communication: skills, analysis, and research. 

We all communicate every day. Those who learn to harnass the power of intentional communication find success in a wide variety of fields. Our graduates have gone into education, law, public service, non profit leadership, politics and more.
