The Department of Communication Studies is a community of students and faculty interested in exploring the complex and dynamic nature of communication in multiple contexts.  Students develop critical thinking skills, a sense of social and ethical responsibility, the ability to develop effective message strategies, and the ability to successfully live within complex social environments.

Graduation from the program requires a grade of C or better in each of the department’s four core classes (CMN 2010, 2020, 2030, 2040) and submission of a student portfolio.  The major GPA is calculated on all courses listed as appropriate for meeting major requirements.  CMN1310G, CMN1390G or any transferable equivalent cannot be used as an elective in the major.
