About Us

Symbolic communication is a defining human characteristic, yet its mysteries often elude us. How do messages lead to meaning—or misunderstanding or manipulation? How has public discourse influenced culture? What are the implications of mediated or visual communication?

These and other questions are explored in the Communication Studies major. Our symbol-making nature is considered in all its manifestations – from how we define ourselves in and through communication to how we define the worlds and cultures we live in.
