Department of Communication

CofC’s Department of Communication teaches students how to better understand the countless messages they receive every day, and how to more effectively craft their own. Whether students are learning about the smallest conversations or the biggest social media platforms, whether they’re exploring political debates or strategic campaigns, our students are being prepared to lead in a world where effective and ethical messaging matters more than ever.
