Communication Studies

Black Texas State Communication Studies wording with star in the middle

A defining—and extraordinary—quality of the Communication Studies Program at Texas State University is the ability of our faculty members to combine the best aspects of teaching and mentoring students with the process of exploring new ideas through research. Communication Studies students are skilled researchers, writers, speakers, and problem-solvers. The faculty and staff in the Department of Communication Studies are experts at helping students understand the vital connections between research and teaching inside and outside the classroom. In our view, solving communication problems and educating tomorrow's leaders go hand-in-hand.
