Department of Communication

Our Program

A Bachelor of Arts in Communication prepares you to create, critique, and connect with audiences of all types.

Consider adding a specialization to your degree by choosing from four concentrations:

What Makes Us Different?

  • NO TESTS. You will write papers, give presentations, and complete team projects, but we'll never ask you to regurgitate what you've read and memorized from a textbook.
  • NO TEXTBOOKS. You'll read and review web-based content hand-selected by faculty from primary sources and academic journals.
  • NO LECTURES. OK, our faculty talk but never for the whole hour. You'll experience lively, active dialogue and seminar-style classes.

What Will You Study?

Examples of communication courses from which you might choose:

  • COM 190: New Media and Digital Culture
  • COM 221: The Art of Dialogue
  • COM 225: Strategic Writing for Communication
  • COM 250: Business & Professional Speaking
  • COM 275: Introduction to Film Production
  • COM 324: Digital Storytelling
  • COM 330: Conflict Management
  • COM 367: Writing for New Media

Our Commitment to Diversity

We value a future that sustains diversity, equitability, accessibility, and inclusivity for people everywhere. Together, we strive to create environments for work, scholarship, and advocacy in which our faculty, staff, and students of all genders and abilities feel valued, respected, and supported in their efforts to discuss, build, and practice a just world. To that end, we are committed to attracting and retaining a staff with diverse and intersecting experiences and perspectives, and we support movements, such as Black Lives Matter and the BIPOC Project, that resist racism, queer violence, and other forms of systemic oppression. And we acknowledge and respect peoples such as the Shawnee, Miami, Wea, Potawatomi, Delaware, Wyandot, Kickapoo, Piankashaw, and Chickasaw tribes, on whose indigenous lands we create much of our work.
