School of Communication

SOC is a communication laboratory informed by the experiences of professionals who work in the field and continue to serve as a focal point for developing and shaping communication services and strategies.

Today, nearly 1,200 students work, study, attend class, and conduct research in a space designed for 800. Despite space restrictions, SOC has responded imaginatively to an industry changed by time and technology, and three of its programs - in journalism, public communication, and film and media arts – are nationally ranked, with a reputation that is everyday being burnished and enhanced by the achievements of its students, professors, and alumni.
