Communication Studies Major

Emphasizing the Personal Over the Technological

Want a well-rounded background in communication that is applicable to a wide variety of career fields? Then this major is for you. Communication studies focuses on the three pillars of communication:

  • Rhetoric and public address
  • Human dynamics and culture
  • Media studies

If you’re planning to go on to graduate school, or if you’re interested in politics, pre-law, speech writing, sales, media criticism and other communication careers that emphasize the personal over the technological this major is valuable for you.

Students involved with communication studies often join the forensics team where they practice and compete in the art of public speaking.
