hello

We Are Open

As part of NC State's coronavirus response, all Humanities and Social Sciences units are working remotely to increase social distance and to promote the safety of our students, faculty and staff. Our business offices are open M-F 8 a.m.-5 p.m. If you would like service, please contact our office by phone at 919-515-9736.


Whether in face-to-face or mediated settings, ideas have greatest impact when communicated thoughtfully, ethically and persuasively through oral, written and visual methods. Make an impact: join us in the Department of Communication.

Communication students practice NC State’s think and do axiom each day. As a student here, you’ll test – and improve – your interpersonal communication skills. You’ll study and put into practice the theories and methods that lead to meaningful results. You’ll conduct research and engage with faculty and fellow students on projects, some with local impact, others that could change the world. And along the way, you’ll gain invaluable experiences and knowledge that will prepare you for a career as a proficient communication professional.  

Undergraduates can choose from three areas of concentration: public relations; communication media; and interpersonal, organizational and rhetorical communication.

Master’s level students gain advanced, intensive training in communication theories and methods that you can apply from day one.

Doctoral students in our interdisciplinary Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media (CRDM) program analyze the social, cultural, rhetorical, philosophical and political dimensions of information technologies, media and texts and graduate ready to apply their expertise in government, corporate or educational settings.
