School of Communication

We balance rigorous academics with hands-on, real-world learning experience. We emphasize critical thinking and ethical behavior. We teach independent minds how to find their voice, express daring ideas, achieve, and lead in their ever-changing fields.

Who We Are

Communication is at the core of modern life, and the School of Communication’s innovative programs prepare students to be leaders in areas such as public relations, marketing, advertising, journalism, political communication, sports communication, communication disorders, management in the creative industries, and digital media. 

Our faculty have worked in newsrooms, built elaborate websites, consulted for healthcare organizations, worked with hearing impaired children and adults, served as corporate public relations managers, developed crisis communication plans, helped political candidates shape and communicate messages, and created award-winning advertising campaigns. Through classes, projects, campaigns, co-curricular activities, and practical demonstrations of effective communication, they work collaboratively with our talented and passionate students to create an immersive and student-centered learning environment.

Vision, Mission and Values

Our Vision: We aspire to be the leaders in communication by providing challenging academics and a hands-on approach that prepares students to change the world. 

Our Mission: We value scholarship and real-world skills, preparing students to be innovative storytellers, creative and critical thinkers, writers, and communication practitioners in an increasingly global, diverse, and digital world. 

Our Values: We value a diverse and inclusive environment, ethical decision making, freedom of thought and expression, and equality as cornerstones of a democratic society.
