Communication is the fastest growing college at Butler. CCOM strives to produce creative, culturally aware, and effective communicators, journalists, and media artists. We are student-centered in an approach that is both theoretical and applied, providing the conceptual grounding for lifelong learning and career flexibility, along with opportunities for professional training and off-campus internships. We also sponsor student chapters of Adrenaline (an advertising club), Lambda Pi Eta (the Communication National Honor Society), the Music and Entertainment Industry Association, the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association, the Public Relations Society, and the Society of Professional Journalists.
