Communication Studies focuses on improving your writing, speaking, and interpersonal skills—skills most sought by employers—as well as self-knowledge, or intrapersonal communication. You will have a good understanding of who you are and what you want to do post-graduation.
Courses focus on:
- Media criticism: Who produces media, what messages are they sending, and how should we interpret them
- Media professions: Journalism, public relations and advertising, video production, and radio programming and production
- Media practices: Social media, writing for journalism and public relations, website design, video production, radio broadcasting, and audio production and podcasting
Consistent with our liberal arts foundation, a range of core and elective courses are offered to assure that you are broadly and deeply educated, including Freedom of Speech, Sports Communication, Learning to Look: Art and Media, Film: History and Criticism, and The Voice of Nature.
