Research Approach

The Communication Studies Department engages in a broad range of research at the cutting edge of communication, media studies, and related disciplines. Our faculty are interested in documenting, understanding, and explaining how human communication and the media shape everyday lives.

 

Our interests are broad enough to include many of the sub-disciplines that comprise the discipline: critical-cultural, digital, health, intercultural and international, interpersonal, mass communication, media studies, organizational, political and environmental, and rhetorical studies. Recent scholarship by our faculty includes volumes published by prestigious university presses, articles published in leading academic journals, and contributions to popular magazines and influential blogs.
