With a young, dynamic, and collegial faculty, the undergraduate and master's programs in Communication Studies are growing and changing dramatically. The faculty has been formidably enhanced in recent years, and we continue to build on our strong traditions in (a) Interpersonal, Digital, and Organizational, (b) Performance Studies, and (c) Communication, Culture, and Public Discourse. We have committed to our ongoing programmatic expansion by supporting a Student Learning Center, a dedicated Performance Space, a Communication and Social Influence Research Office, and a Computer Mediated Communication Research Laboratory. The faculty and graduate students, working independently, collaboratively, and as members of interdisciplinary research teams, have improved our publication rates as well as our presence at regional, national, and international conferences.
We are proud of our accomplishments and are constantly striving to improve our standing in the College, the University, and the larger Communication Studies discipline. Our goal is to build on this momentum and to cement our position as an outstanding undergraduate program in Communication Studies and as one of the premier terminal master's programs in the nation.
Donors play a key role in these efforts and can participate through a variety of giving opportunities. You can make an important difference in the life of the department by supporting scholarships for undergraduates and/or funding of department initiatives.
