The School of Humanities offers a B.A. degree and minor in Communication. Majors choose one of three concentrations to complete the degree: Communication Studies, Integrated Media, or Film & Media Arts. (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 performance organizations enhance classroom instruction. The program'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)


To teach the theory and practice of communication, both to students dedicated to pursuing careers requiring advanced skills and knowledge in communication, and to students in all other majors across the university who require basic knowledge and skills in communication for the conduct of careers, public and private interactions, and interpersonal relationships.
