Department of Communication classroom


In this section of the website you'll find information to guide you as you work toward a Communication degree: requirements (including advising & portfolios), descriptions of our majors, as well as details about our honors program, internships, and many study abroad opportunities. We also offer a hybrid (partially online) distance education degree in Advertising. Finally, take a look at another exciting opportunity: the Kellar Radio Talent Institute.

Admission to the Department

The Department of Communication seeks to admit students who are dedicated to pursuing a degree in the varied fields of communication.

Students may declare a major in Advertising, Communication Studies, Journalism or Public Relations as soon as they meet the university's requirements for declaring a major. 

Resource limitations place a restriction on the number of students who can be served effectively by the department's Electronic Media/Broadcasting major. Therefore, students must apply for admission to the EM/B major no later than Feb. 1 for the following fall semester, or no later than Sept. 15 for the following spring semester. 

For more information about becoming a major in our department, please check the Requirements page.
