College of Communication Arts and Sciences

Communication Arts and Sciences BuildingEstablished in 1955, MSU's College of Communication Arts & Sciences was the first to develop a research framework for the study of communication. Our faculty, graduate students and alumni are among the most highly accomplished, published and recognized scholars and practitioners in their respective fields.

The college includes the following five departments: Advertising and Public Relations; Communication; Communicative Sciences and Disorders; Journalism; Telecommunication, Information Studies and Media; as well as a public media network, WKAR, that includes three television stations and two radio stations.

CAS academic programs cultivate strong research skills, areas of expertise, and teaching early in our students' academic pursuits. We take a transdisciplinary, translational approach to addressing basic and applied communication questions across and between sectors. Our research emphasis include health and risk communication, communication technology, and international access to communication technology for remote, rural communities.

The college's undergraduate programs offer an integrated curricular approach, including Media Sandbox, which prepares graduating students to be truly global communicators. Equipped with highly marketable media skills and impressive portfolios, our graduates are sought after by top media companies, healthcare, education and training, sales, and the corporate world at large.
