The curriculum includes a core of courses that focus on the theory, history, principles and procedures of mass communication, public communication, and oral communication. Students plan their course study according to the specialty they choose:
- Newspaper and Magazine journalism,
- Electronic media for radio and TV,
- Public Relations
- Advertising or Oral Communication
Additional courses in interpersonal communication, communication law, communication theory, and visual communication complete the curriculum. Experience gained via student media, communication student organizations, on-campus practica, and off-campus internships provide an essential component to the curriculum. Communication majors must also complete the University core, or general education curriculum appropriate to the degree they seek.
