The School of Communication specializes in areas such as emerging communication technologies, health and environmental communication, social media, social movements, political communication, media psychology, and marketing communication. Our program offers you extensive training in instruction and research, as well as access to an impressive array of resources, tools, and facilities that can help you achieve your educational and professional goals.
Beginning with a common core of courses, students will encounter various philosophical, theoretical, and methodological approaches to communication scholarship, from interpretive analyses to empirical studies. A major goal of the program is for students to gain knowledge of and an appreciation for the complexities and interdependencies within the range of communication inquiry.
To that end, students will gain a critical, historical, and theoretical grounding in the communication discipline that will prepare them to pursue more in-depth coursework in media studies, cultural and rhetorical studies, or marketing communication. Students will be actively mentored so that they can present the results of their coursework and scholarship at national and international conferences, culminating in publication in refereed scholarly outlets.
