USA's Department of Communication

The primary objectives of the Department of Communication are: to understand and teach the functions, processes and effects of communication; to attempt to influence communication environments in which we live in a contributory way; and to provide professional preparation for communication-oriented careers, including communication technology, journalism, public relations, organizational communication and mass media.

Given these goals, the Department attempts to meet individual performance and career needs with a flexible curriculum. Students select one of the five tracks offered and confer with their advisors to plan their courses of study. These focused areas of study are not a vocational education, but they will help to prepare students for several employment possibilities.
