What is communication?
Communication is the study of efforts to create, share and control meaning. Communication occurs in face-to-face contexts, via speech and the body, and through technologies as old as writing and as new as social media. In the communication minor, you’ll explore the role of communication in relationships between people, cultures, industries and technologies. Our goal is to help you become a critically-engaged citizen and skilled communicator prepared for work in a wide variety of fields, from business and marketing to community organizing and government.
Why study communication at UNH?
You’ll study real-world political issues, news events, cultural phenomena and communication between friends, family members, colleagues, community members and strangers. To enhance your coursework, you may also learn digital media production in the state-of-the-art Communication Media Lab; participate in the student and faculty group UNH CAMRA; and facilitate meaningful conversations and collaborate with our local communities on topics important to civil society through the Civil Discourse Lab.
