Mr. Justin Foote; Dr. Elizabeth Sills

The Communication Studies major provides an essential foundation for many careers. By developing their skills in the understanding and practice of communication, students develop insight and abilities in effective expression. The major provides the skills needed for positions in education, business, industry, and government service. It also prepares students for professional schools in law, journalism, public relations, and organizational communication and for graduate studies in speech communication, rhetoric, public relations, mass media, and others. Communication Studies courses give students an insight into the communication process, the role of language in communication, the psychology of communication, and the ethics of the communicator. Because of the intimate nature of the department, students are able to tailor experiences and projects to their special needs and interests.
