Our courses take a broad approach to education as they encompass both historical and contemporary theories in the study of human communication. Faculty teach you how to analyze messages and audiences within multiple contexts as well as stress the importance of ethical citizenship.
We encourage participation in campus activities like the Debate team where you can learn to apply analytical skills with research and experience in public speaking. No experience is need to be on the debate team and it is open to all majors. For more information, contact the Debate Coach, Dr. Patrick Richey, KUC 312, Patrick.Richey@mtsu.edu
When you work with your adviser to discuss your academic plan of study, we highly recommend that you take an Internship as part of your program. Internships allow you to apply information from the classroom to real work situations. They help you prepare for job interviews as well as give you insights into what is expected in a work setting. For information about internships, contact Dr. Kaylene Gebert by email (Kaylene.Gebert@mtsu.edu), phone: 615-898-5263, or by going to her office in the Honor's building, room 202.
