The broad-based Communication department offers students the opportunity to specialize in journalism/media studies or interpersonal communication, and to explore media technology, public relations, intercultural communication, photography, and radio and video production. Courses help students improve their skills in writing, speaking, and understanding the messages of others in individual, group, and mass media contexts. To accomplish these goals, the curriculum addresses the theoretical, critical, and technical aspects of communication.
