The Communication program provides undergraduate education for students wishing to major in seven emphasis areas that include Civic Advocacy, Digital Media, Interpersonal & Family Communication, Multimedia Journalism, Organizational Communication, Public Relations & Advertising, and Communication Teaching in either Communication Studies or Journalism. It offers a Communication minor, a Communication teaching minor, and a BIS option. An Associate of Science in Communication is also offered. The Communication Department also serves students seeking general education in three courses: COMM 1020 Principles of Public Speaking, COMM 2010 Mass Media & Society, and COMM 2110 Interpersonal & Small Group Communication. The 2110 class is offered as a Concurrent Enrollment course in local high schools.
Students who major in Communication hone their knowledge and skills in writing, speaking, listening, interpersonal and small group interaction, new media, research methods, communication theory and law, and critical thinking. Many students get involved with co-curricular organizations, including The Signpost, KWCR Wildcat Radio, Ogden Peak Communications, Studio 76/Wildcat ONE TV, and WSU Debate where they can get hands-on learning. They conclude their academic experience by preparing an e-portfolio and resume, and completing an internship with a professional organization. Graduates work in a variety of fields or attend graduate and law school.
