Department of Communication

The study of communication and rhetoric is one of the oldest and also one of the most contemporary of fields. Communication majors examine important questions about society, government, business, communication, and persuasion in a way that combines the best of the ancient liberal arts tradition with critical attention to the newest media technologies and trends.

In courses such as ethics, persuasion, argument, interpersonal communication, political rhetoric, rhetoric of science, nonverbal communication, history of media, media criticism, and television and society, faculty offer diverse views on the roles of communication, media, and rhetoric in our lives.

About 500 students are currently enrolled in the communication program, which offers 41 undergraduate courses.
