Communication in the 21st century: “ubiquitous, complex, consequential”
- Poole & Walther

Undergraduate Program

At the undergraduate level, the BA program helps students develop their competence in communication activities and processes, and enables them to analyze and solve communication problems in health, interpersonal and intercultural, organizational, or political contexts. We accomplish this by exposing students to theories, research findings, and applied experiences in the classroom, and providing opportunities for internship experiences in professional settings.
