The Department of Communication is an award-winning program where students specialize in one of three core emphases: Communication Studies, Public Relations, or Journalism and Media Studies. Students majoring in Communication learn the skills necessary to be leaders of tomorrow through engaged learning practices developed and implemented by faculty with decades of experience both in and outside of the classroom.


COVID-19 Modified Operations

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Department of Communication, in consultation with faculty, staff, and students, has made the decision to move all Communication courses online for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, with F2F classes beginning in Summer of 2021. You will receive an email from your instructor notifying you of this change. 

Online office hours will be implemented immediately. As the majority of faculty and staff will adhere to social distancing measures, the best avenue in which to reach individuals is by email. Please be aware that some faculty and staff members may come to campus during this time, as the campus remains open; however, there will not be any standard office hours until further notice 

To contact specific faculty/staff members, please visit

If you have general questions related to the department, schedules, course listings, etc., please contact the Administrative Assistant, Kristen Smith ( and/or the Department Chair, David Morin (

We thank you for your patience during this time.
