Communication is the very foundation of society. The College of Communication Arts and Sciences, the first college of its kind, pushes the boundaries of communication research and teaching to improve lives and promote democratic values. We prepare tomorrow's global communicators to solve real problems throughout the world. We produce and share timeless knowledge that transcends the message and the medium by focusing on how humans communicate effectively with whatever tools may be at hand. The College of Communication Arts and Sciences searches for the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow. Our classrooms reach beyond the traditional four walls to embrace the entire world. Working side by side, our students and faculty discover and explore the next communication frontier.

  2. To educate its students in greater depth in one or more of the specialized areas within the College.
  3. To conduct communications research and creative activities, and to use the results for the benefit of society.
  4. To offer all students in the university the opportunity to learn and apply the processes and techniques of communication.
