The communication major is not designed as a training program in advertising, journalism, production, or public relations. By design, the courses in the curriculum tend to cluster into several different areas of study. These areas represent important foci in the communication discipline and are areas in which the Department s faculty possess special expertise. Students may specialize in one of these areas or may design individual programs of study by choosing other combinations of electives that best meet their needs and career objectives and tailor their academic experience.
