The curriculum of the Department of Communications combines technical training with a strong liberal arts-based education in the theory, history, law and ethics of mass communication. The department is located in the Langford Communications Center, a facility equipped with a television studio and control room, digital editing suites, and a radio station.

The Department of Communications offers students many opportunities to build their intellectual and professional skills in the areas of writing, conceptualization, and production of complicated media packages. The college's cable television station, radio station, student newspaper and Internet magazine give students opportunities for practical experience in their chosen fields, and internships with business and industry are also available.
