Communications (COMCL) - ARCHIVE

PROFESSOR WILLIAM J. MAHAR, Director, School of Humanities

The communications program helps students prepare for careers in print and broadcast journalism, public relations, video production, and telecommunications. The major combines professional skills with critical examination of the effects of media on society as well as connections between contemporary media and classical literature, drama, and art. Students take courses in varieties of media, writing, professional communications areas, and critical and cultural approaches to communications. Internships in journalism, radio, television, public relations, and other fields are available for qualified students. Small classes, an outstanding multidisciplinary faculty, and an excellent location for valuable internship experiences are just some of the features of the program.
