The School of Humanities offers a B.A. degree and minor in Communication. Students may choose one of four concentrations to complete the degree: Communication Advocacy, Digital Media, Journalism, and Public Relations. (see degree requirements)

An acquired understanding of communication theory, research, and practice are central to the department’s mission. Effective communication has limitless applications across computer-mediated and face-to-face professional and personal contexts.

 Co-curricular opportunities in digital media and student performances organizations enhance classroom instruction. The department's internship program places advanced students in positions outside the university, where they contribute substantive service to the community and professions.

 The Communication Program also offers an interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree program. (see degree requirements)
