Department of Communication


The Communication degree at Robert Morris University is a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communication with concentrations and minors in advertising, applied journalism, communication studies, corporate communication, public relations, and theater. A primary focus of the concentrations is engaged learning with coursework reflective of cutting edge curriculum. RMU Communication students intern locally and nationally which positions them to launch careers in the professional market or for continuation in graduate studies. The Communication faculty are a blend of practitioners and academics who subscribe to the teacher-scholar model as they guide the professional development of students’ leadership and career exploration through five extracurricular clubs and national conference experiences. Communication majors have the opportunity to work in our award-winning student converged media newspaper RMU Sentry Media, which allows students to gain hands-on publishing experience as members of its writing, design, and editorial staff, as well as build their portfolios and hone their multimedia skills. In addition, through the Colonial Glee and the RMU Colonial Theatre, the Communication Department is the primary source of the performing arts for the university. 

The Department of Communication is committed to the university's mission which includes (1) integrating liberal arts with technical and professional programs, (2) offering innovative curricula integrating communication and information sciences in all disciplines, and (3) providing quality services to students and employers seeking graduates with technical or professionally oriented degrees emphasizing applied knowledge.
