Department of Communication Convocation Ceremony
Students interested in Communication at the University of Delaware take a set of five core classes mostly across their first and second years.
Students will then choose between three concentrations -- Media Communication, Interpersonal Communication, and Public Relations. Additional information regarding the three concentrations and associated minors is found below. Please visit Program Information and Requirements to learn more about the study of communication, the department and available resources, career paths, and advisement.

To fulfill the remainder of the Communication-based requirements to complete the major, students will choose between one of the three concentrations detailed below:
Media Communication focuses on the analysis, explanation, and interpretation of mediated forms of communication, such as television, film, radio, newspapers, and books. The emphasis is on theories of communication that help explain the historical development of the mass media, and the effects of these media on social, institutional, and interpersonal formation. Students are able to acquire experience in the techniques and methods of media production, but emphasis is on theory and basic principles, rather than on specific preparation for a particular role in a communication organization.
Interpersonal Communication focuses on the forms of communication that occur among individuals and groups. The orientation of this concentration focuses on theoretical principles that can be successfully applied for the understanding of communication as it occurs within the widest range of personal, business, and social settings.
Public Relations focuses on applying communcation models and theories to the public relations planning process. Students will recognize the importance of ethical principles, diversity and inclusion competencies, and legal considerations in the practice of public relations. Upon completion of the concentration, students will be able to demonstrate a wide range of technical skills, such as writing, media relations, public speaking, and social media management in order to create strategic communication campaigns reflecting the four-step management process of public relations.
Our majors can further specialize their studies by completing minors in the following:
