Communication can be characterized as the foundation of human societies; that is, societies arise through communication and would cease to function without it. Indeed, communication is the paradigm of a cross-disciplinary field that is anchored in the liberal arts.
Our undergraduate major provides students with a comprehensive, internationally focused education in communication in an exceptionally diverse milieu. Faculty members enact a blended approach to theory and application that emphasizes intellectual curiosity for its own sake while cultivating useful skills.
We study human interaction and symbolic practices, educating students to be culturally competent and ethically responsible leaders in journalism and media, advertising, public relations and corporate, government and nonprofit settings.
The major requires completion of 40 hours of coursework with an international emphasis.
