Major Areas of Study: COMMUNICATION

The study of communication at Muskingum University isdesigned to provide students with an understanding of the communication processes found in contemporary society, an appreciation of the historical, technological, literary and dramatic heritage of communication and an opportunity to improve skills in oral communication.

Students may become involved in intercollegiate forensics as well as have an active role in WMCO, a Class A 1.32 KW FM radio station, and MCTV, a television production studio operating on the cable access channel in New Concord. The Muskingum University forensics team is another exciting way to get involved as a student. Being part of a team, traveling the country to compete with other colleges and universities, and strengthening your communication skills are all excellent ways to prepare for success in any career.
