School of Journalism & Mass Communication
The Communication major offers students a combination of theoretical and practical courses that provide students with the broad background necessary for successful entry into the field of communication. Our department is committed to fostering the growth of well-rounded students by providing an experiential learning environment on and off campus, collaboration between faculty and students, and a broad understanding of the ethical responsibilities of communicators in a diverse world.
In addition to the core communication courses required of all majors, students are given the opportunity to chose a specialized major that is best suited to the student's interests and career goals. These majors include: Public Relations, Converging & Interactive Media, Broadcast & Electronic Media, and Multimedia Journalism.
