Communication

Explore the Department of Communication

Our students explore the ways in which various forms of communication constitute, maintain and transform social life. We offer courses in media studies, rhetoric and face-to-face interaction. We'll encourage you to "learn how to learn" and to be clear and precise writers and critical thinkers. We promote a philosophy of education and an approach to scholarship that continually draw connections between the ideas and research methods that you learn at UNH and the larger world. Our goal is to have you graduate as a thoughtful and proficient "communication decision-maker" — on the path to your last job rather than only your first.
