Communication

Communication Scholarship & Research

The Department of Communication at Worcester State University promotes the critical understanding of communication in a culturally diverse and technological world. Grounded on methods of inquiry, the program engages students in the theory and practice of mass communications and intercultural communication. Our goal is to educate students to assess the role of communication in society, and to be proficient communicators and competent users of current technologies. Representing diverse areas of expertise, the faculty emphasizes contemporary issues and media ethics from a global perspective.

Courses focused on media literacy, criticism, production and special topics, prepare students for careers in the field and for further study at the graduate level. Facilities include computer labs, a state-of-the-art television studio, editing suites, electronic field production video equipment and photographic dark rooms.

In addition to course work, students in their junior and senior year who have a GPA of 2.7 or higher are encouraged to apply for media internships with companies and nonprofit organizations that have a long-standing relationship with the Department. Majors have the opportunity to become members of WSTS-TV 11 and WSCW radio station. The Department sponsors internships and photographic exhibits; in addition, many of our students participate in off-campus communication-related competitions and activities.
