The Department of Communication offers five undergraduate majors (Advertising, Communication Studies, Corporate and Organizational Communication, Popular Culture Studies, and Public Relations) that prepare students for understanding the complexities of communication in the modern world. We also house two minors (Communication Studies and Digital Advertising). We feel that a broad-based liberal arts curriculum is essential for a well-rounded education.
The minor in digital advertising requires 24 semester hours of coursework and is designed for students from a variety of majors. The primary goal of the curriculum is to help students develop a better understanding of advertising utilizing emerging digital communication technologies.
This minor will be of benefit to students in a variety of professional fields such as English, political science, history, religious studies, psychology, business, teaching, or the sciences.
This certificate allows for exploration of the role that communication plays in political systems by combining studies in the fields of communication and government.
This certificate gives students the tools they need to enhance the experience of a user when interacting with products such as websites, apps, blogs, branded promotional material, and social media efforts.
*No new program enrollment starting Fall 2019 for Popular Culture Studies (BA) and Political Communication (Certificate).
