Communication And Literature

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Communication and Literature is to help students develop oral and written communication skills that will enhance their personal effectiveness, prepare them for careers in various communication fields, and develop intellectual tools necessary for success in the university and beyond.  


Why study here?

The department offers a general B.A. major in Communication with two emphases:  Public Relations and Speech Communication. A B.A. in English and a B.A. in Spanish are also offered. The department offers minors in Communication, Electronic Media Communication, English, Journalism, and Spanish. 

The Department of Communication and Literature can help students prepare for a career in journalism or languages.

The faculty includes dedicated professionals. Their passion for language, media, and journalism encourages students to become actively engaged in learning and developing the skills necessary to be successful in their chosen field. The low student-faculty ratio in courses required for the major also allows individual attention and training for students.

The Department of Communication and Literature provides students with opportunities for learning outside of the classroom. Students gain valuable experience in practicums and internships, which provide them with hands-on training that leads to careers in communications.
