Join us and acquire practical skills, communication theory, and critical analysis. Media (print, TV and video, Internet and mobile), modes of communication (oral, written, visual), and contexts (face-to-face, mediated, public, and organizational) converge in our careers and daily lives. We offer the first state-university program in the Bay Area to cover this interrelated spectrum of today's communication in new and traditional forms.
The Department of Communication offers a range of programs and courses:
We also host several student-run and/or student-serving entities:
The Department of Communication has affiliations with the National Communication Association (NCA), Association of Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication (ASJM), the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC), and the California Newspaper Publishers Association (CNPA). The department also sponsors campus chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists, and the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
We acknowledge that our department and the CSUEB campus is on the ancestral land of the Yrgin Chochenyo Ohlone People. We pay respects to the Ohlone people, past, present, and future. Please reflect on the history of the lands and waterways where we gather together, and the legacies of colonization that have led us to this moment. Let us consider our roles in reconciliation, decolonization and allyship.
