Communication Studies

The Communication Studies Department at Furman University inspires students to be digitally savvy, rhetorically confident and creatively invested.

A communication studies degree from Furman combines the study in the humanities and mass communication with opportunities to speak, debate, and create your own media portfolio. Students learn and work with numerous digital platforms while developing critical thinking skills to prepare them to be active citizens, industry leaders, and media pioneers.
Communication Studies majors at Furman are equipped with the analytical and theoretical methods they need to make strong ethical and political judgments, create compelling arguments, and advocate for noteworthy causes. Our internship program, independent research opportunities, and state of the art media lab offer students the chance to apply classroom theories to real-world practice.
