Department of Communication
We are committed to helping our students find their voices so that they can care for themselves and others. Together, we are shaping a better world as authentic, articulate, and persuasive rhetors, organizational members, and storytellers.
A Bachelor of Arts degree seeks to provide students with a broad-based understanding of the processes of human communication and the importance of these communication processes in our society.
The B.A. / M.A. degree in Communication is a traditional 36-hour B.A. degree combined with a 30-hour M.A. degree, enabling high-performing CSS majors on the Corporate Communication track to earn a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in 5 years.
The MA in Communication program at Baylor University aims to develop innovative, articulate, and ethical leaders in multiple fields related to communication and media.
Our faculty publish in top-tier journals, write books, and produce other forms of engaged research that address the communicative dimensions of leadership, organizing, relationships, technology, media, and public culture.
As scholar-teachers, we also share a commitment to cultivate skills in humanistic and social scientific inquiry in our undergraduate and graduate students so that they can productively intervene in the problems and complexities of our social world.
