Communication

The Department of Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside focuses on the development of cultural competence within the context of the local community, the nation, and the larger world. The Communication Department fosters cultural competence through experiential learning opportunities within the context of theoretical coursework.

Emphasizing the relationship between theory and practice, communication students are given the opportunity to improve their competencies in oral and written projects based on a comprehensive understanding of the complex process of human communication. In addition to regular coursework, students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship in their senior year. An internship is on-the-job experience under academic supervision.
