About the Department

Match your message to your medium at TCNJ. Choose from three specializations— public communication and mass media, radio/television/film, or interpersonal and organizational communication—and earn an outstanding education. Our program integrates deep conceptual knowledge with strong practical experience, through close collaboration with faculty mentors whose influence stretches from scholarly research to creative media production. The result? Students do more than master the technical skills of the discipline—they learn to think critically about the way messages are created, conveyed, and consumed in modern society.
