Welcome to the Communications Department!

Message From the Chair

Faculty N. Cheever

Students dedicated to building professional careers in print media, film, TV production, telecommunications, and the closely-related fields of public relations, advertising and organizational communications, will find degree programs designed by the Communications Department to meet their needs and to challenge their skills and interests.

Departmental curricula are designed to prepare students to pursue careers as communications professionals in the media rich communications industries and corporations. As such, students will be expected to be adept at basic language skills and knowledgeable in at least one area of specialization. They also should be aware of professional responsibilities, ethical practices and laws governing the mass media.

Students from other disciplines, seeking to improve their communications skills and knowledge about the media and their impact upon society, will find a variety of course offerings.
