In communication studies, we prepare students to lead lives of purpose through study in the humanities, media, rhetoric, and advocacy. Our majors jump into careers in a variety of fields including marketing, fundraising and event planning, advocacy and professional communication, coaching and mentoring, journalism, and public media.
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.
The Communication Studies Department at Furman University inspires students to be digitally savvy, rhetorically confident and creatively invested in their communities. 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.
