ACT’s Communication program offers dynamic academic instruction and a wide variety of activities that support student’s growth in the discipline. Students may choose from one of two options: Media Studies and Organizational & Strategic Communication.
Communication activities provided by the department include The Southeastern Newspaper, The Savage Storm Yeardisc, KSSU Radio Station (FM 91.9), forensics and debate, film production, and publicity and promotion oportunities. The department has several chapters of organizations from which students may participate: Lambda Pi Eta (communication), National Broadcasting Society, Alpha Epsilon Rho (broadcasting), and Pi Kappa Delta (debate).
The mission of the communication program is to challenge students to develop and enhance oral and written communication skills, research competence, and media production skills. The communication program equips students with theoretical, critical, and practical knowledge to prepare students for entry into graduate school, professional school, and the workforce.
