Greetings from Department Head Steve Depoe, Ph.D.
Welcome to the Department of Communication Website. We are committed to excellence - in the classroom, through research and publication, and through service to the community. Our faculty members are among the finest teachers
and scholars in the field of communication. We believe that we have the best students on campus, and we will work to provide those students with a quality educational experience.
The Department offers programs of study leading to the B.A. and M.A. degrees. In addition, B.A. students can earn a Public Relations Certificate, Digital Engagement Certificate, or a Sport Media and Promotion Certificate.
We also have a number of student organizations that you can participate in, including Lambda Pi Eta (an honorary student society), a Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter and UC Communicats. Several scholarship opportunities are available for students, including the Jones Scholarship, the Lucille Pederson Scholarship, and the Verderber Scholarship.
We have also built Communication Alumni Network (Friends of Communication) to help students maintain a connection with us after graduation.
Our M.A. program provides excellent classroom and research experience for those wishing to continue on to doctoral level study, as well as those who wish to advance their professional careers.
If you have any further questions about any of our programs, or would like to contact me directly, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the Department!!
