One of very few integrated Communication departments at University of Utah in the country, it provides rigorous theoretical and methodological training across the spectrum of communication studies, and specifically across four of the Department’s five areas of emphasis: Communicating Science, Health, Environment, and Risk (CommSHER); Critical/Cultural Studies; Digital Media; and Rhetoric. Fluidity and flexibility across these areas of emphasis is not only possible but encouraged; most faculty have expertise in two or more of these areas, and graduate students are likewise supported in creating uniquely tailored programs of study that draw from across areas and faculty.
- Candidates for the Ph.D. in communication must achieve competency in a minimum of four areas of specialization.
- Typically, studies outside the department are expected. Proficiency in critical, empirical, or historical research methods is required. All courses taken as alternatives to the requirements must be approved in advance by the department.
