Communication Studies Department

Students who study Communication at NWU enjoy a broad based education in the field. In addition to their coursework, students have an opportunity to apply their knowledge in the workplace through our extensive internship program, service learning, and study abroad. In recent years, students have pursued internships in Lincoln, New York, St. Louis, Denver and Washington, D.C. Many of our students choose to examine the cultural implications of communication by devoting a few weeks, a semester, or a year to study abroad.

Whether students decide to explore the streets of Florence through the Communication Studies Summer Italy trip or study for a semester in Europe, Asia or Africa, the experience is rich and life-changing. It is the combination of a strong curriculum and real world experiences that help Communication Studies graduates reach their personal and professional goals.
