The Communication Program
Because communication is a vital social phenomenon, the mission of the Communication program at the University of Connecticut is to study and teach about communication with areas of specialization including interpersonal, persuasion, communication technology, nonverbal and media effects.
It is our goal to pursue theoretically grounded research and to disseminate knowledge by publishing our research and by teaching. We contribute to the university community through external grants and excellent teaching, and to the larger society by conducting socially meaningful empirical research.
The Communication program at the University of Connecticut is ranked # 1 in New England according to the National Research Council and ranks among the sixth most research-productive nationally.
The Department of Communication is located on the 2nd Floor of the Jaime H. Arjona Building.
