Welcome to the Communications Department website. We offer Bachelor of Arts degrees Advertising/Public Relations, Journalism, and Film, Television and Media.

Our goal is to teach students how to create and critically analyze textual and visual media content while providing an understanding of the various media industries, professions, and practices; media laws, theories and research methods; and media messages and representations. We encourage students to respect and celebrate all forms of diversity, and we train students to be sensitive to and provide a voice for underserved populations and communities, work in the public interest, and engage in social responsibility to audiences and the society at large.
