Communication Studies offers students a broad education spanning interpersonal, public, and mediated communication practices, preparing students for a range of careers. Students in our major know that words matter. You’ll immerse yourself in thinking about how humans communicate and you’ll prepare to bring people together in powerful, effective, and meaningful ways.
Our focus areas allow you to explore your interests in communication in depth. Whether you want to learn how people form relationships and work in groups (Professional & Relational Communication), how citizens and politicians argue and advocate to solve problems and advance causes (Rhetoric & Public Advocacy), or how film, television, and new media shape our identities and society (Media & Society), we have a course of study just for you!
