The Department of Communication at Augusta University recognizes that communication is an integral part of human behavior, and effective communication is essential for a civil society to thrive.

Our goal is to prepare our students for careers in the field of communication or to use communication productively in whichever industry they choose. We also aspire to help our students become leaders in their community and in the professional realm.

Our curriculum helps students to develop effective and confident communication skills and a solid foundation in theory, supplemented by real-world experience. In addition to traditional coursework, we offer many internships with highly respected local, regional, national, and international organizations; we advise or collaborate with students on professional and published work or research; and we provide a robust, 6-hour capstone experience called "The Agency" which ensures our students are career-ready by the time they graduate.
