Students in the Department of Communication learn about two distinct areas of the discipline – rhetoric and media – and the intersections between the two. Beginning with the Greeks, students examine the history and theories of rhetoric and argument, which they use to analyze contemporary issues and controversies. Faculty also guide students through media history to current approaches in media, with both practical and analytical skills in radio and film. Students put these marketable skills to work through internships in the field, gaining valuable experience and a competitive edge.
