Media delivers information to society and humans engage in all modes of communication to shape their interactions. People consume news on Snapchat, blog about contemporary issues, shape their identity on Facebook and create living autobiographies on Instagram. The ways we communicate are changing every day, yet the human need and ability to connect is stronger than ever.


Our Communication Studies program is designed to give you the critical skills needed to negotiate the communication demands and challenges of contemporary industries and teach you how to understand the ever-changing mediascape affecting society, both in the past and the present. Communication Studies examines the forms and practices of communication through six areas of emphasis:

  • Media and communication history
  • Media and cultural theory
  • Visual communication
  • Global communication
  • Cultural and creative industries
  • Digital media studies

You'll gain foundational knowledge of mass media, along with a critical perspective, allowing you to become a reflective, influential and engaged citizen. You'll learn to analyze communication in its social, economic, political and cultural contexts.

Our broad approach to the field will prepare you for diverse careers, including professional communications, publishing, politics, nonprofit work and public relations. You will also be equipped to pursue professional programs after graduation, such as journalism, business and law.
