Communication Studies

Welcome to the Department of Communication Studies!

We invite you to explore the diverse, innovative, and dynamic curriculum in the Communication Studies department. We offer a B.A. and an 18-credit minor in Communication Studies. We also offer a B.S. in Social Media Theory & Strategy (SMS), and as of Spring 2019, a minor in SMS. The SMS program draws upon curriculum in the Humanities, Business, and Communication Studies, so students specialize in social media strategy and prepare for jobs in cutting-edge, rapidly growing industries. Communication Studies includes areas in media studies, interpersonal communication, strategic communication, performance studies, and rhetoric and civic engagement.

Our Communication Studies program has a 12-credit core curriculum, and it provides students with the flexibility to take 30-credit hours in their area(s) of interest. We encourage students to earn a minor with the 36-credits of open electives available. Whatever the area(s) of specific interest, Communication Studies majors will be prepared for graduate school or the job market in a wide variety of disciplines and industries. They will be effective communicators who are equipped with the skills all employers are looking for.

The Department of Communication Studies is located in the Rickenbach Learning Center (LC).
