Department of Communication

Welcome to the Department of Communication website and thank you for your interest in our programs. Because it is closely linked to the technological, social, and cultural changes that are rapidly changing our world, communication is a popular and versatile major at Barry University that offers students various ways to pursue their interests and career goals.

We offer programs of study that reflect the variety of the communication discipline. At the undergraduate level, some of the department’s special strengths include the ability to major in advertising, communication studies, public relations, or broadcast and emerging media. Because we offer several majors, you will be able to integrate your studies in ways that most suit your interests.  Students can choose readily available electives or combine their major with several minor programs of study.  We also offer a thriving internship program that has placed students throughout the Miami and adjoining areas so that they gain professional experience in an international metropolitan environment.

We offer you a great combination of ample resources and facilities, an international and professionally involved faculty, and current and relevant programs of study all packaged within a supportive department environment focused on helping you fulfill your goals.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs and the opportunities the department offers you. If you are planning a visit to the Barry campus, please let us know, and we will be happy to arrange for you to meet some of our students or faculty and to tour our facilities. Please contact us with any questions at communication@barry.edu

I look forward to hearing from you.
