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 students, at the forefront by creating options and flexibitility for your education and by preparing you for a variety of careers.

Some of these changes include hiring new faculty, shortening our name to the Department of Communication Studies, offering a BA degree and a BS degree in Communication, and developing concentrations in Organizational Communication and Culture and Social Influence.  We plan to launch these changes by fall semester 2018.

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.
