Communication Major

The Communication Department at Stonehill helps students develop deep understanding of the theories and humanistic approaches used in the field.

A Program Built to Foster Your Success

Professors in the Communication Department are committed to undergraduate teaching and strive to create a supportive and challenging learning environment. Our faculty members are also productive scholars, whose work has been presented at professional conferences and published as books, book chapters and refereed journal articles.

The program’s small class sizes creates an intimate, supportive environment that fosters success. In addition, the College’s exclusive undergraduate focus means there are tremendous opportunities to work directly with faculty members on research projects. Students also have access to an extensive internship program that can tie knowledge gained through coursework to real-world experiences.

Two Concentrations, One Solid Foundation Fr. James W. Chichetto, C.S.C, Associate Professor of Communications

The Communication major, with concentrations available in Communication Studies or Mediated Communication, provides a foundation for graduate studies, or for careers in diverse areas like mass media, public relations, journalism, politics, law, education and other related fields.

Our curriculum allows students to create their programs of study according to their academic and career interests from courses within the Department, and upon consultation with their advisor, from complementary courses outside the Department.
