Communication is changing in exciting ways.

Message from the Dean
In the College of Communication and Design, students learn by doing. Our projects provide credits for your degree and real-world experience for your resume. We train you for the future by forecasting trends in technology so, when you graduate, you are ready to fill positions with skills others have not yet mastered.

In my analysis, four kinds of students thrive in communication and design:

Storyteller—You express yourself through the narrative form: journalist, PR or advertising specialist, screenwriter

Visualizer—You see things through images and instinctively deliver your message graphically: digital designer, photojournalist, director

Performer—You love to be “on,” commanding attention: actor, singer, dancer, on-camera reporter

Artist—You are driven to create, no matter the media: illustrator, digital animator, web designer

If one (or more) of these sounds like you, I invite you to find your place in the College of Communication and Design.
