CommunicationPrograms in CCIT integrate theory and practice into a variety of dynamic programs with outstanding professors, staff and facilities. Consider areas such as the evolution of language; the impact of the printing press, television, recordings and computers on society and culture; and how technology, particularly digital technology, is shaping human communication. Our programs are highly flexible and facilitate interdisciplinary study across areas that are constantly evolving.
