Saint Louis University's Department of Communication educates students to become culturally-sensitive participants in democratic dialogue. In particular, the University seeks to cultivate innovative, ethically-responsible leaders in fields such as journalism, communication research, public relations, advertising, human resources, public service and teaching. Students integrate theoretical knowledge of human interaction processes while honing specialized skills in writing, speaking, critical thinking, research, and design.
Students at the Madrid Campus have the opportunity to complete the Communication degree with an international focus. The unique, global position of an American university campus in Europe, and the distinctly diverse make-up of our student body and faculty present a wide range of academic opportunities, which includes a number of upper-level International and Intercultural Communication courses.
