The College of Communications provides the opportunities and resources of a large university with the personalized feel and support of a small school. As the largest accredited program of its kind in the nation, students can find a place where they can fit and succeed. Our four departments — Advertising/Public Relations; Film-Video and Media Studies; Journalism; and Telecommunications — offer five undergraduate majors. Graduate students may pursue a master's degree in media studies or a Ph.D. program in mass communications, with several distinct areas of emphasis. Faculty members blend strong academic and professional backgrounds and possess a commitment to excellence in teaching, research and service. Along with nine research centers and special programs within the College, students benefit from on-campus visits from academics and professionals at the top of their fields for endowed lectures and special programs.
