Communication Studies

Our mission is to provide students with the knowledge, networks, and experiences they need to succeed in the dynamic, fast-paced economy of the Communication Century.

Between the swift advance of technology in the information age, shifting cultural and geopolitical realities, and the constant evolution of messaging platforms and mediums, one thing is clear: The way we communicate as a society is more critical than ever.

The Communication Studies Department’s dynamic undergraduate curriculum and flexible requirements allow students to forge a distinctive niche within the vast and varied communication landscape, while our diverse professional network affords a wide spectrum of co-op and experiential learning opportunities, in Boston and around the world—enabling students to gain practical experience and build connections that will form the cornerstones of a successful career after graduation.
