The Department of Communication is one of the largest departments at NC State University, with nearly 700 undergraduate majors and about 70 full- or part-time graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.).

The undergraduate curriculum offers three programs toward a degree: 1) Interpersonal, Organizational and Rhetoric Communication; 2) Communication Media; and 3) Public Relations. We have two graduate programs — a Master's of Science in Communication and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program (in collaboration with the Department of English) in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media, known as CRDM.

We place a solid grounding in communication theory at the core of everything we teach. Award winning faculty members collaborate on research and teaching, often across the program areas. Our professional interdependence reflects our departmental culture, characterized by mutual respect, friendliness, and a dedication to advancing the teaching, research, and service missions of the university.




We will soon be migrating to a new website.
