The Department of Communication Arts, the largest department in the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, provides a forum through which students can develop life skills such as confidence in oral and written presentations, communication skills, and critical analysis and problem solving skills. Students in the Department represent a broad spectrum of majors, interests, and career possibilities in Communication Arts, Communication Studies, Multimedia Film & Production, Multimedia Journalism, Public Relations, and Theatre.  They work together and with faculty on research projects, state-of-the-art productions, events, online news outlets, and broadcasts.
