Strong skills in visual communication, writing, social media, research, speaking and critical thinking are essential in a competitive job market. Every Communication major receives hands-on training in these skills thanks to a firm groundwork focused on:

  • media literacy
  • media law and ethics
  • undergraduate research
  • visual communication
  • hands-on pre-professional experiences

Communication majors can take additional courses in their interests, whether that’s photojournalism and infographics, filmmaking, acting, journalism or public relations. Many local, regional, and national internship opportunities are also available. The major culminates in a senior capstone experience, The Agency, a six-hour course in which students complete a pre-professional project, coupled with a five-minute talk recorded in our TV studio lab.
