Students in the Department of Communication gain a broad range of knowledge and skills to become communication experts, effectively crafting and critically evaluating messages for a variety of audiences and contexts, developing convincing arguments, conducting research, and understanding communication as a tool for persuasion, advocacy, and relational maintenance. 

Courses are additionally offered in health communication, cultural communication, and digital production. The Department of Communication offers an on-campus and an online B.A. degree. 

Professional internships, a study abroad program, research opportunities, and two communication undergraduate organizations provide students with hands-on learning experiences. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in these activities.  

A degree in communication is not intended to provide vocational training for a specific industry, but to prepare students for a broad range of professional opportunities requiring active communication skills. Recent graduates have found careers in sales, public relations, marketing, advertising, promotions, political consulting, corporate communications, human resources, event planning, social media, media production, law, education, and public policy. Some students also pursue graduate studies.
