We should start off by acknowledging our colossal, elephant in-the-room pet peeve: It truly bothers us when people refer to us as the Communications (plural) Department. Our coursework and approach go beyond individual communications, such as a letter, a television broadcast, or a tweet. We reach into the heart and soul of communication—how and why information is exchanged in individual, group, and mass settings, and how this information is influenced by (and influences) each one of us.
Millions of messages are sent daily through various media. Our communication program tracks, which include Public Relations, Mass Media, Journalism, and Communication Management, combine a unique balance of theory and practice to help students first understand how messages are developed, sent, and received. Mixed with our dedicated faculty, real-world application opportunities, and outstanding internship program, this approach helps students learn how to break through the noise and achieve success in various traditional and new media platforms.
Here’s a breakdown of our communication (singular) major:
