Mission Statement

The Department of Communication at Pittsburg State University provides an integrated program of preparation for careers in advertising, broadcasting, communication education, journalism, photojournalism, public relations and theatre.  The activities and programs uniquely available from the department reflect a multicultural and interdisciplinary perspective commensurate with the goals of a liberal education for students.  The same unique activities and programs provide services for the University, the community and the region. The department is committed to promoting the ideals of freedom of expression, and at the same time developing an understanding in our students of the significance of responsible communication in society. The department fully endorses an active approach to learning.
