Welcome to the Department of Communication Studies at NMSU!

“A modern major for a modern workforce and a more fulfilling life”


Communication Studies focuses on the complex role human communication plays in everyday life.  Our courses provide students with the tools to make sense of and respond to human communication processes in interpersonal, organizational, political, intercultural, and mediated contexts. In today’s increasingly global, mediated, and diverse workplace, studying communication and learning to communicate effectively are more important than ever. 

Our undergraduate and graduate curriculum are designed to help prepare you for professional careers typically emphasizing expertise and skill in communication, such as careers in public relations, politics, law, advertising, sales, education, management, government service, mediation-arbitration, customer relations, human resources, and civil service.
