Whether you're working toward a career in communication or media studies, or you want to improve your communication skills in preparation for a career in another field, the Communication and Media Studies Department can help.

The department offers a variety of courses to suit your needs. Many classes involve service learning, so students get hands-on experience working with individuals and organizations on campus and in the community.

The department also supports a number of student organizations that can help you get the professional experience you need to hit the ground running when you graduate.

Check out some cool things our students are doing below:
