Communication Arts Mission Statement

The Department of Communication Arts has as its purview the study of media and speech communication within the context of the liberal arts at Framingham State University. The goal of the department is to provide students with a balanced perspective from which they may explore the nature of human communication. To that end, the Department offers a wide variety of courses in the areas of media and speech/performance. These studies are designed to promote both a mastery of communication theory and a facility in the execution and performance of such theory.
