Communication Studies

Thank you for visiting the Department of Communication Studies website.  We are a dynamic department and are undergoing many exciting changes.  These changes keep you, the student, at the forefront by creating options and flexibility for your education and preparing you for a variety of careers.

Some of these changes include the addition of seven new tenure-track faculty in the past four years, offering both BA and BS degrees in Communication, developing concentrations allowing students to specialize in Organizational Communication and Culture and Social Influence.  We are currently building a generalist degree as well as creating a new concentration in Health Communication with plans to launch them by Fall semester 2020.

Please take a moment to browse our website and explore our major.  Feel free to call, email, or stop by and visit us in Jones Hall room 233.  The faculty are excited to meet you and help you shape your future.


Communication is central to all human interaction, and the department provides students with exploration of communication theories and skills through a variety of courses, projects, and internships.
