The Communication and Media Studies department represents one of the fastest growing disciplines in higher education. It is founded on the belief that competent communication transforms individuals, organizations and society. Graduating majors are prepared for careers, or for additional education, in fields as diverse as advertising, entrepreneurship, public relations, broadcast journalism, law, ministry, human resources, higher education and not-for-profit management.
Departmental faculty define oral communication competence as the ability to form and maintain satisfactory relationships as well as the ability to gather, organize and deliver informative and persuasive speeches. Thus, course offerings in the broad areas of corporate communication, media studies and organizational communication are supported by both interpersonal and rhetorical theory.
The Department of Communication and Media Studies at Georgetown College offers a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Media Studies. For information regarding our program, contact the chair of the Department of Communication and Media Studies, Dr. Chris Nix
