Welcome to the Department of Communication Studies

The Department of Communication Studies promotes and engages in the study of human communication. Established in 1928, we are one of the oldest communication departments in the nation.

We offer BA, MA, and PhD degrees. Our programs equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be sophisticated, effective, and ethical communicators in their communities, workplaces, and everyday lives. Our goal is to prepare students to successfully address the increasingly complex communication challenges in our global and diverse world.

Graduates of our undergraduate and graduate programs have found positions in a variety of communication-related careers including but not limited to non-profit organizations, law and politics, the arts, entertainment, academia, journalism, communication training and consulting, social justice and equity advocacy, speech writing, business, public relations, education, sales and marketing, and human resources.
