How do we study Communication at Saint Anselm College?

We study various forms and facets of communication from a liberal arts perspective, including interpersonal, mediated, spoken and written communication.  As scholars and teachers of communication, we're interested in how communication works between individuals, groups, families and organizations. We're interested in the rhetoric of media images and sounds. We're interested in the politics of representation. We're interested in the way that language and its use helps us form identity and community.

What skills do Communication majors develop?

  • The ability to create compelling messages
  • The ability to critically engage media messages and technologies
  • The ability to participate ethically in both interpersonal dialogue and civic debate

Many of our majors pursue careers in diverse fields such as: Journalism, broadcasting, sports marketing and production, film production, advertising, public relations, event planning, speech writing, editing, arts marketing, government and politics.
