 Communication Department 



The Communication Department provides the experience and opportunity our students need to develop professional skills and attitudes, intellectual ability, and self-confidence. We seek to promote your development in an open, caring, and friendly environment. Our effectiveness in fulfilling this mission is best measured by the collective excellence of our graduates and the successes they demonstrate professionally and in serving their communities.

Our majors develop effective speaking and writing skills, new media production and design skills, the ability to engage in research and analysis, an understanding of the ethical and legal challenges in the communication field, professional skills and attitudes, and career skills.

Once you graduate from Slippery Rock University as a Communication major, you will join an impressive group of department alumni who have achieved academic excellence and are well-prepared to pursue careers as professional communicators and an active participants in the community and the world.
