Communication Studies

The Communication degree has concentrations in Advertising, Communication Studies, Journalism, Public Relations, and Sports Communication.

The Communication Studies concentration is designed to provide students with pragmatic preparation for the dynamics of human interaction. Upon completion of the concentration, students should have knowledge of how organizations and groups function communicatively, how to facilitate these functions, as well as understanding human interaction across a variety of contexts. Students gain valuable experience in advanced public communication techniques as well as develop a greater understanding of their own communicative practices. Finally, this concentration allows students to begin understanding how traditional communication contexts are changing with the introduction of communicative technology.
