The Department of Communication Studies is proud to announce that over the past 2 years, the number of students majoring in either Strategic Communication, Public Relations, or Sport Communication has increased 62%.  This growth is directly attributed to our engaging our students in research that prepares them for both the job market and graduate school and continuing to offer new and dynamic course work.  As we prepare to introduce our new major of Health and Risk Communication in the Fall of 2013 and revamped curriculum in Sport Communication, this trend is sure to continue. Consider joining us and being part of something truly special.
