Department of Communication Arts


In This Section


Communication is a foundational skill in all sectors of the professional world. And, in a rapidly shifting environment, there has never been a more critical need for excellent communicators. Our programs integrate deep conceptual knowledge with strong practical experience through close collaboration with faith-based faculty mentors whose influence stretches from scholarly research to creative communication production. As a result, students do more than master the technical skills of the discipline—they learn to think critically about the way messages are created, conveyed and consumed in modern society.


About Us

With so many unique ways to communicate, the Communication Arts Department offers bachelor of arts degrees in communication studies, public relations and journalism and new media. We are preparing students for careers in a wide variety of communication professions. Our students have enjoyed great success in these fields, continuing to blaze new trails in communication. In a dynamically changing communication landscape, strong communication skills through a multitude of platforms translates to professional success.

Be sure to look at Lancer Media Group which includes our award-winning, student-run publications including CBUTV, our student-run PR firm and our CBU PRSSA chapter.

I am always happy to help with any questions you might have with any of our programs. I look forward to connecting with you!
