‚ÄčKami Silk, Professor and Department Chair

The major in Communication is designed around two central goals: increasing knowledge about communication processes and their impact on society; and developing communication skills and competencies.  In pursuing these goals, the Department of Communication has adopted a social and behavioral science orientation toward the study of human communication.  All majors study communication in a wide variety of contexts, including interpersonal and media communication in both mediated and face-to-face settings.  A broad spectrum of classes enables students to critically analyze communication as well as recognize their own ethical responsibilities to self and community.  The communication faculty is also committed to turning theory into effective skills for speaking, critical thinking, writing, and media production so that academic knowledge and experience extend beyond the classroom into future opportunities for our students.
