The communication major provides courses that explore models of communication theory and application of theory in specific communication contexts. The major approaches the study of communication from a broad, liberal arts perspective that includes the historical, philosophical and theoretical roots of communication. Courses provide necessary background for successful work and service in the public, private and religious sectors, as well as future graduate studies.
