Communication

Study how we inform, interact, and persuade one another while exploring hands-on opportunities.

Students in Communications Class

When you hit the job market, communication employers want to see what you can do. As a graduate of Waynesburg University, you’ll have an amazing portfolio that will open many doors.

In addition to classes that build a foundation in mass communication techniques, ethics, theory, and strategy, you’ll also participate in media production outside of the classroom to apply what you’ve learned. As early as the first week of your college career, you can begin working for the campus newspaper, the Waynesburg University Sports Network, WCTV, or one of the many other co-curricular activities. Our program’s equipment and facilities include an iMac lab for web and print design, an industry-standard newspaper production facility, radio station and television channel, a mobile television production truck, and a photography studio.

While you can graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication, many students find themselves drawn to one of the Department of Communication’s specialized programs including: public relations, advertising, journalism, digital design, electronic media, sports media, or sports announcing.
