Since the Greek paideia and
the Renaissance studia humanitatis, the study of the historical and
social character of communication has been fundamental to higher
learning. A Communication Studies degree from Furman will develop
your critical thinking and speaking skills, include opportunities to study in
Brussels or Edinburgh, and prepare you for literally hundreds of careers in
areas ranging from television and film media to government service.
Engage in thoughtful debates. Deliver powerful
speeches. Advocate for causes you believe in. Our dedicated faculty will help
you cultivate these skills through courses that focus on modern media and
digital communications while still maintaining a strong commitment to
rhetorical tradition. We offer the best of old and new in the field of
communications: theoretical work and a sense of history combined with
cutting-edge courses and facilities. We even offer credit to students
who conduct independent research studies in their areas of interest, which can
include anything from the use of technology by market women in Ghana to the
history of television and radio broadcasting in South Carolina. Simply put, we prepare our students to take a leadership
role in any career or endeavor.
