Communication at Bryant

Our undergraduate and graduate academic programs embrace a common mission: to fortify the intellectual and social skills necessary for effective human communication.

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.

Our department offerings gives students an opportunity to study various functions and forms of communication while honing their own individual talents with the guidance of mentoring faculty. In this way, our students are prepared to become impactful communicators and industry leaders.

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.
