The Communication, Media, and Theatre (CMT) Department, as suggested by its name, includes three distinct, creative and demanding disciplines that are linked with their foundation in the study of communication in a variety of contexts. Students majoring in these areas will learn to become more proficient in the theory and practice of communication, media and theatre arts while developing an appreciation of differing values and perceptions of the world in which they live.

Communication (CMTC), Theatre (CMTT), and Media (CMTM).
