Bachelor Communication Studies
The School of Communication Studies (COMS) embraces a liberal arts orientation whereby students learn to pose questions and pursue answers by critically thinking, describing, synthesizing, critiquing, and imagining. Across courses, students explore how messages and relational interactions shape and in turn are shaped by institutions, emerging technologies, and globalization. Our goal is to cultivate the lifelong development of communication competencies that individuals need to coordinate action, solve problems, foster well-being, engage in creative activity, and participate in civic life.
