We want to help you develop the skills to think critically and creatively, while mastering communications in all of its forms, so that you will be prepared for understanding, responding, and actively participating in a world that’s quickly changing, thanks to phenomena like the growing reach of technology and the expanding power of the Internet. In a field that looks at the world at large, you will find that what you study lies at the intersection of multiple fields, which will allow you to start answering questions like, how does mass media affect society? Do depictions of gender follow a pattern, and can those patterns be shifted? What are the implications of human-computer interactions? How do film and the written word explore different cultures, and what is the meaning of the messages that they express? Our interdisciplinary approach also inspired us to create the Comparative Political Communications minor, ideal if you’re interested in a more in-depth treatment of this significant overlap. Power, political institutions, policy, and the press: it’s a great time to explore.
