Welcome

The Department of Communication is a national leader in the study of communication as a social science, ranked among the top five in a recent poll by the National Research Council. Our faculty and students are dedicated to understanding the role and enhancing the effectiveness of communication processes, systems, and infrastructure in society. We explore communication in its many forms and contexts as a fundamentally social phenomenon. Our faculty members are recognized for developing and applying novel theoretical perspectives to the most pressing social and policy issues of the day.  

Alumni/Undergraduate Student Connections

This January, 11 Communication students traveled to Los Angeles to visit alumni in various communication companies. The students were part of the LACOMM seminar, which included on-campus meetings where students researched the companies and alumni they would meet on the trip. Each company offered wonderful insight into their daily lives and allowed our students to develop a better understanding of their companies and their industries. Thank you to all of the alumni who shared their time, those who joined us for receptions at Marix and the Hillcrest Country Club, and the alumni who funded our trip. Our students visited Warner Brothers, Access Hollywood at Universal Studios, NBCUniversal, Century City, TNT and TBS, and Premiere Playa Vista. Check out the group below on the set of Access Hollywood!
