The Art & Science of Communication
Communication: the art and science of transmitting information from person to person. Itís an art because most of what we communicate is a reflection of life: ideas, systems, desires . . . love. Itís a science because the theories of communication manifest themselves in very concrete and technical structures: newscasts, speeches, feature films, even a State of the Union address.
In the Comm Studies department we look at communication in several different ways, from reaching large numbers of people through the media of film and television to reaching a small number of people, or even one person, through public speaking and interpersonal relationships.
So whether you want to be an artist or a scientist, the Department of Communication Studies has you covered with degrees in Mass Communication (Film School), Public Relations, or Communication Science.
