Giving Voice to Potential

We offer three majors: Advertising & Public Relations, Communication Studies, and Multimedia Production & Journalism.

  • Students complete a communication core that develops their knowledge of web communication and social media, the fundamentals of video production, public speaking, communication theory, research methods, persuasive principles, and ethical frameworks.

  • Our Senior Seminar provides critical career planning support, including assistance with resumes and cover letters, the development of a portfolio (both online and hardcopy) and a Signature Project that showcases each student’s expertise.

  • Our new Web Communication and Design minor is an interdisciplinary program (communication, design, and basis programing) for students interested in helping businesses and nonprofit organizations connect with online audiences. Careers are rapidly emerging for content creators, social media strategists, and user experience designers.

The Communication minor is available to students who desire to strengthen their presentation, group communication, writing, and critical thinking abilities.
