The Department of Communication’s guiding mission is Communication for the public good. The department is committed to research that innovates, teaching that inspires and service that matters. We cultivate our community members’ academic, professional, civic and personal aspirations through communication theory and practice. To advance this mission, we build local and global partnerships that enhance the public good.
A degree in communication is one of the most sought after at Maryland. The study of communication at Maryland is as old as the institution itself. The first students in the Maryland Agricultural College faced requirements in rhetoric and elocution as part of their curriculum.
