The mission of the Department of Communications is to provide an intellectually rigorous path of study of communications media.  Our department provides in-depth professional preparation for various fields in communications. The department faculty is committed to standards of excellence and to the creation of a climate where students strive to make a difference in the community.

The program emphasizes the development of critical thinking, superior writing capabilities, a contemporary visual intelligence, technical competence, and effective oral communication. Students actively engage with the challenge of communication for the screen, the page, and the World Wide Web while gaining an understanding of the impact of the media on society and the individual.

These objectives are accomplished by a supportive environment of collaboration, creativity, and active engagement with experiential learning led by a faculty of professionals and scholars.
