The Department of Communication is dedicated to putting students first. Our faculty members place a priority on quality teaching, which is demonstrated by their engaging courses, revising the curriculum and course materials, and caring for students. Our staff do their best to ensure that students meet the university's requirements so they can graduate on time.

Our curriculum gives students hands on, real-time experiences that transform how they see the world and their chosen field. As a result, our students develop communication, media, and broadcasting skills that can take them to the top of their fields. Students graduate not only with the skills they need to succeed and thrive wherever their career takes them, but with the confidence they need to pursue their dreams.
