    Overview

    Communication Studies is a discipline that addresses communication processes at work in virtually all human activities. The University of Nevada, Reno program focuses on these processes as they occur in: a) public advocacy and civic engagement, and b) relational dynamics. A balance of contemporary social science and critical-cultural perspectives on human communication guide our teaching and research efforts. Accordingly, we emphasize a breadth of research methodologies. Our mission embraces the importance of contributing new knowledge while maintaining high standards of teaching and advising. We see research, teaching, and professional service as mutually reinforcing. We view the refinement of communication skills as central to achieving civility and effectiveness in personal and professional activities. The power of communication inspires our commitment to students and the greater Nevada community.
