Communication and Journalism
In courses offered in the Communication and Journalism Department, you will investigate communication as a social and intellectual process. You will view communication as a shaper of history, examine speech as an art form and a tool, and study journalism as a responsible human behavior.
Through your courses you will gain understanding, ethical frameworks, and skills to manage your conduct as a compelling communicator in both mediated and unmediated forms — whether you are majoring in Communication or in any other field of study offered at Seattle Pacific.
