The Communication program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the nature of communication in order to prepare them with the knowledge and skills to live and work in a diverse and complex society.
The program emphasizes communication theory, research and practice. Theory courses, such as CMJN 2100, COMM 3500 and COMM 3600, introduce theoretical underpinnings of the communication discipline. Research-based classes include COMM 3510 and COMM 3610. These and related classes teach students how to evaluate research as well as formulate and test their own discipline-specific questions. Context courses, such as Health Communication and Legal Communication, allow students to apply communication theories and concepts to real world contexts and practice.
