COMMUNICATION STUDIES

ABOUT

The Department of Communication Studies at the University of Miami School of Communication empowers students to develop advanced skills in cross-cultural communication, leadership, argumentation, oral and written presentations, critical thinking, research, relationship building, and more – skills that can be used in any field or career.

Communication Studies students have the opportunity to conduct important research on a number of topics and are challenged to apply communication skills through hands-on experiential learning and professional internships. Our outstanding professors prepare students for many different careers, including politics, public advocacy, health care promotion, business, and intercultural education, or to pursue graduate or law school.

We will explore contemporary theories and modes of persuasion and propaganda and apply them to selected historical and contemporary cases of genocide. We also will attempt to identify approaches to preventing mass atrocities.
