The College of Communication (CCOM) was founded in 2010 and is currently Butler’s fastest growing college. CCOM features a strong liberal arts foundation, outstanding facilities, and impressive internship opportunities. The College’s faculty and staff are committed to helping students realize their full potential as communicators, journalists, media artists, and, most of all, engaged citizens. All of CCOM’s nine majors blend rigorous curricula with abundant experiential learning opportunities.

The College’s coursework is thus theoretical and applied, providing the conceptual grounding for lifelong learning and career success.
