Areas of Study

The Department emphasizes the cultural dimensions and implications of communication practices from oral and written language, to film, television, and digital narrative. Organized into three areas of research - rhetoric and public culture, film and media studies, and performance and ethnography - the curriculum brings together faculty with a broad range of backgrounds and interests within these fields and provides a solid foundation in the history and theory of each area.
