Welcome to the graduate program in Communication

The emergence of Communication as a multifaceted social science discipline is connected with both the search for new perspectives on contemporary problems and the profusion of technologies of communication. Our graduate program approaches communication as the primary social process through which social realities are constituted, maintained, and changed. Those varied processes and contexts constitute the core of our work, with opportunities to pursue communication theory and research in the following areas:

  • Social Interaction and Culture 
  • Film Studies
  • Media, Technology, and Society
  • Media and Cultural Studies
  • Rhetoric and Performance Studies

Our goal as a department is to educate students who will be expert in their area of concentration, who can locate their field of study in the context of alternative theoretical options and research procedures, and who can account for their theoretical and methodological decisions.
