The Department of Communication, in the interest of developing responsible communities and individuals, strives to teach a diverse population of students the theories, principles, and practices of effective and ethical communication in a range of personal, public, visual and mediated contexts.  The Department also seeks to prepare interested students for advanced undergraduate and graduate studies in Communication.

The option in Communication is appropriate for students focusing on many areas of study as well as professional careers.  A concentration in Communication is often selected by students going into education, business, marketing, public relations, law, social work, criminal justice, and political science. This option provides a solid foundation to a liberal arts education.
