Beyond the Classroom

We encourage all communication majors to incorporate co-curricular activities into their studies. Whatever you choose, there are many opportunities for rewarding experiences outside of class.

There are many engaging undergraduate research possibilities in several areas, including health communication and family and relational research, among others. Our students frequently present the fruits of their labor both on campus at the annual Paideia conference, as well as at communication conferences around the country.

Our internship program offers you real-world experience and college credit. You’ll spend a semester working with a mass media, corporate or service organization of your choice. These valuable, practical experiences are excellent networking opportunities and often lead to offers of employment after graduation.

Faculty members lead study abroad trips that immerse students in an intercultural communication experience that includes film studies and politics and a host of exciting excursions.

Our chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Association honor society, sponsors fundraising opportunities, educational workshops, preparation for graduate programs and social events.
