Welcome to the Department of Communication
â€śSuccess in both personal and professional life is wholly dependent on the ability to craft effective messages through strategically appropriate channels and this is the central focus of the Department of Communication.â€ť (Matthew T. Jones, Ph.D.)
We prepare students for success in the global information economy, by combining practical skills in media production, journalism, public relations, and interpersonal communication with theoretical insights into the evolving nature of media, aesthetics, and human relationships.
By program completion, graduates will be prepared with what is perhaps the most valuable set of skills in the modern age: the ability to interpret and create effective messages in a variety of media forms while anticipating industry and social trends. This is why students of communication will be the leaders of the future.
