We Live to Create
In the College of Communication (CCOM), we put our students and their success at the forefront of everything we do. As a dynamic and forward-thinking college, we seek to create an inclusive learning environment where we cultivate community on a daily basis. Our small class sizes and 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures that the focus is always on you, the student, and your personal and professional development.

Through a strong liberal arts foundation, committed faculty involvement, valuable internship experiences, exciting study abroad programs, and the chance to join student-led organizations you won’t find anywhere else, our students’ academic pathways are limitless. Our coursework offers theoretical and applied experiences providing our students with a framework for lifelong learning and career flexibility through a wide variety of unique student opportunities.
In CCOM, learning extends far beyond the classroom as you start gaining industry experience on day one.

Develop as a communicator
Developing speaking and writing competencies in our students is of core importance to our college. Through our Speaker's Lab, and Forensics and Debate teams we are helping students to develop these abilities and graduate as competent and ethical communicators.
Our classes are led by passionate and dedicated professors, scholars, and practitioners, who are involved in their professional community in some way. This involvement keeps the subject matters they teach relevant and engaging.
