Our students can select from seven majors to prepare themselves for a career in a Communication field marked by continuous, persistent, and frequent change. We teach our students to be professional communicators who are ethical, responsible, talented, knowledgeable, and aware of the need to be life-long learners. The Communication Department has small classes and professors with real-world experience in the fields they teach. Students who select one of our seven majors are strongly encouraged to take part in "high-impact" practices that provide the opportunity to earn class credit while getting the valuable experience that employers in communication want in those they hired. These "high-impact" practices are:

Internships  |  Undergraduate Research  |  Travel Study  |  Practicums: UWW-TV, WSUW-FM, Royal Purple  |  Capstone Projects
