SOC Mission Statement

SOC Logo

The School of Communication educates students to master a rapidly changing media and communication environment; one that reflects an increasingly complex global, interactive and diverse society.

Through teaching, writing, scholarship, and partnerships, the School of Communication and its faculty empower our graduates with the knowledge, skills, and insights to become responsible, ethical professionals in all areas of the communication field and to make a difference in our economy, politics, culture and society. With our strategic blend of professional expertise and intellectual exploration, and our deep connection with the world’s communication center of Washington, D.C., we create a community of knowledge, practice and impact that keeps our students, alumni, and faculty at the leading edge of a society increasingly defined by media and communication.
