Communication Studies

Can be taken as: Minor Concentration

The Minor Concentration in Communication Studies provides undergraduate students with a critical understanding of the role that communication media and communication technologies play in society. Specifically, it presents students with intellectually challenging and innovative instruction in key traditions of Communication and Media Studies and new theoretical and methodical approaches to the social life of communication technologies and the historical development and transformation of media and communication forms. Courses offered reflect faculty interests in critical, anti-oppressive, and interpretive traditions in communication studies and are organized around three primary themes that address in a variety of ways media institutions, practices, and the representation and mobilization of social difference: History and Theory of Media; Media, Communication and Culture; and Power, Difference and Justice.
