What You Need to Know About Communication Studies – from Colten Meisner ’17

“Communication Studies (as a department) is the study of human communication and personal relations, not strictly public speaking or mass communication.”

“Theory in communication studies is extremely practical and helpful. Learn your theory well, and you’ll be set for learning practical skills, too.”

“Be prepared to research! Almost every course in the department requires you take part in independent research, some more than others. It is important to be passionate and curious about human communication and become a student outside of the classroom.”
