The Department of Communication offers three majors: Communication, (communication leadership and communication & the law), Strategic Communication (public relations and advertising) and Journalism & Electronic Media (newspaper, radio, television and online media). Students within the department are also eligible to be considered for the Accelerated CAS Bachelor’s/M.B.A. Program, which is detailed in the Graduate Studies Catalog.

The Communication Department prepares students for professional careers as well as advanced studies. Students who major in communication fields become knowledgeable about the subject matter from both humanistic and scientific perspectives. They also have opportunities to acquire on-the-job experiences through experiential- and service-learning internships. In addition, courses are designed to serve students in other departments of the University by developing their oral and written communication skills.
