The Communication department seeks to provide students the opportunity to:
Communication majors are required to select a concentration as their main area of study within the department and take five required courses in that area.
Additionally, communication majors are required to minor or take a cluster in a relevant discipline. The rationale behind this requirement is that work in the information industries is not only about producing content for audiences, readers and users, but, more importantly, about the nature of that content and its purpose. Students must therefore seek to develop expertise in a specific content area.
