The Department of Communication offers three majors: communication studies, media
communication, and business communication. Two minors are also offered:
communication studies and media communication.
The department’s primary mission is to prepare the next generation of communicators
for further study or employment in their chosen fields. Building on a balance of practice
and theory the department is committed to fostering a personal, dynamic, creative
environment in which students learn from mentors in contexts ranging from quality
classroom instruction to rigorous studio practice.
From communication theory to mass
media the Department of Communication is committed to developing in each student
an appreciation and understanding for the dynamic, creative impulse that all men
and women share, the basic need to interact.
Through involvement in the college’s
newspaper, radio and television studio, the department is also dedicated to providing
students communication educational experiences and internship opportunities that
enhance and expand the cultural lives of both students and members of the surrounding
