The Department of Communication is committed to the study and practice of human communication in a wide variety of contexts, including interpersonal communication, media communication, and public relations. Our faculty members have achieved regional and national distinction in research and scholarship, teaching, and service and engagement.
Research and Scholarship: Our faculty is dedicated to generating new knowledge and disseminating that knowledge widely and publicly. The Department has adopted a social and behavioral science orientation toward the study of communication. Our research and scholarship aim to increase knowledge about communication processes and their impact on society and to increase knowledge about how to improve communication skills and competencies. Given the significance of communication processes and practices across a variety of fields and knowledge domains, the Department is also committed to innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research that pushes the boundaries of the Communication field.
Teaching: We are dedicated to providing rigorous and comprehensive instruction to undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students to prepare them as competent communicators in their personal, civic, and professional roles. Bringing innovative, excellent, and learner-centered pedagogy into the classroom, our faculty encourages students to develop their critical thinking skills, to express and advocate ideas effectively, and to understand and appreciate the diversity of human communication practices. We also prepare students for research-oriented graduate programs and careers by providing them with opportunities to conduct original studies on their own or with faculty members.
Service and Engagement: Our department recognizes the value and importance of service and engagement. To this end, our faculty and students use their research, teaching, and production skills to help professional, community, and public groups develop and improve their communication practices.
