Performance Studies

Undergraduate Studies Program

Performance studies are concerned with communication embedded in aesthetic texts and contexts. Undergraduate courses provide students with a multitude of communication and critical performance experiences.

Organizational Communication

Organizations are primary sites of meaning-making, identity formation, knowledge production, security, health and wellness, strategic communication and democracy in contemporary society. Because organizations are increasingly complex, our organizational communication area adopts a multi-perspective, dynamic approach to the study of organizational life.
