The Utah Valley University Communication Department is shaping students to become the next top leaders in journalism, public relations and speech communication through courses and engaged-learning experiences that are theoretically driven, innovative, and applied. The department prepares students with the necessary skills to communicate visually, orally and through written documentation within the context demanded by the business, journalism, advertising, and public relations worlds. Students are also equipped with a solid ethical foundation and an understanding of diversity and interdependence in the global community.
