The Department of Communication Studies prepares our students to be effective and ethical communicators in their professional, relational, and cultural roles. Our students learn to critique and create messages in multiple contexts. We emphasize the intersections of theory and practice as the foundation for problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, and understanding the diversity of communication practices.

Graduation from the program requires a grade of C or better in each of the department’s four core classes (CMN 2010, 2040, 3000, 3030).  The major GPA is calculated on all courses listed as appropriate for meeting major requirements.  CMN 1310G, CMN 1390G or any transferable equivalent cannot be used as an elective in the major.
