Welcome to the Department of Communication & Media!

We are glad you’re here. This is a dynamic department—with students studying human relationships, analyzing film and television, creating films, practicing public relations, writing for the student newspaper, and instructing others in communication.

The faculty’s mission in the Department of Communication & Media is “to develop students who are effective and ethical communicators with the creative, critical, and collaborative skills necessary to succeed in a diverse global environment.”

Our students pursue undergraduate degrees in communication studies or media arts with emphases in media studies or media production. We also have minors in communication studies, public relations, and digital journalism, as well as a teaching certificate in communication. Additionally, we have a Master of Arts in Communication.

We promote a student-centered environment where we are committed to providing the most up-to-date curriculum. Our professors and instructors are some of the best with whom I have ever worked. They include published authors, filmmakers, sought-after speakers, respected leaders, and award-winning educators. They love to teach and are constantly looking for ways to make the learning environment the best possible for our students.

Please take some time to check out our web presence, including our department Facebook page. Feel free to reach out to our faculty and staff with your questions. We’d love to visit with you.

Sincerely,


Dr. David Gurney
