The Department of Communication, Media, and Theatre, as suggested by its name, includes three distinct, creative, and demanding disciplines that are linked with their foundation in the study of communication in a variety of contexts. Students majoring in these areas will learn to become more proficient in the theory and practice of communication, media, and theatre arts, while developing an appreciation of differing values and perceptions of the world in which they live.


The undergraduate degree is a liberal arts oriented degree. Students take courses in Communication (CMTC), Media (CMTM), and Theatre (CMTT). A total of 38 credit hours is needed to fulfill the requirements for a major in Communication, Media, and Theatre.
