Mission Statement

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.

Programs of study in Communication at UVU offer a balance of analytic and applied approaches to study in the field. The department offers an expanding menu of beginning and advanced courses in mass communication, public relations, media studies, interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, international
communication, organizational communication, and journalism.

Encouraging student internships, and working closely with Student Media and other units on campus, the curriculum balances traditional, academic-style learning with applied, practical approaches to study in the field.
