Welcome to the Department of Communication and Culture!
Students in the Department of Communication and Culture explore the cultural dimensions and implications of communication practices from oral and written language, to film, television, and digital media. With faculty clustered in three interconnected areas - rhetoric and public culture, performance and ethnography, and film and media studies - the Department provides students with an innovative, interdisciplinary program that combines history and theory with critical practice. We offer students a wide variety of courses and a flexible and challenging curriculum designed to encourage students to engage the complex relations between communication and culture.
Please be advised that the Department of Communication and Culture is currently undergoing reorganization, as part of a wider effort to integrate programs in media, communication, and journalism across the Indiana University campus into a new Media School.
Details about the new school are available at the IU Provost's Website under the heading, "The Media School":http://www.indiana.edu/~provost/academic-initiatives/. Communication and Culture is expected to formally disband as of July 2015, coinciding with the official launch of the new School.
