Welcome to the Department of Communication and Journalism where we 

  • Boast a world-class faculty of leading researchers and practitioners in our fields. And, we take the time to know students by name.

  • Deliver direct access to an exceptional education in journalism and communication, using state-of-the art tools, that prepares students to enter the constantly changing media and communication industries or pursue graduate studies.

  • Encourage students to gain real-world experiences right here on campus by hosting or producing their own shows on the student-run radio and television stations, WXOU and OUTV, and by becoming a staff member or contributor at the independent student newspaper, The Oakland Post.
  • Promote Study Abroad opportunities to ensure students are competitive in a globally connected, transnational marketplace.

  • Produce students who are leaders, who make a difference in the world, and who are always ready for the next great challenge.
