Communication Studies Major

MAJOR

Communication Studies majors receive instruction in both interpersonal communication and public communication. They acquire an understanding of both theory and application in these areas. They also become familiar with the methods of inquiry and research used by scholars in communication and rhetorical studies. Majors take one introductory class in public speaking and another in interpersonal communication. They are required to take a course in Empirical Research Methods (COMM 3700) and also a methods course in Rhetorical Criticism (COMM 3300). Majors complete their programs of study with five to seven upper-division courses in such topics as Nonverbal Communication, Persuasion, Health Communication, or Women and U.S. Public Discourse.
