About This Department
Effective communicators increasingly are in demand to direct the exchange of information that drives our diverse world. Advanced writing and speaking skills need to be complemented by computer literacy and an understanding of the mass media, as well as an appreciation for the complexities in human interaction.
At the undergraduate level, we offer courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with optional specializations in Organizational Communication and Social Media, Public Relations and Event Planning, Strategic Healthcare Communication, and Broadcast Journalism, Film, and Television. We also offer a minor in Communication or Film Studies.
Our facilities include an HD television studio and control room, AVID editing suites, and student-run media outlets.
