The Department of Communication is one of the fastest growing units serving students on campus at the University of Kentucky.
Communication is one of four units in the College of Communication and Information.
1) Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees for undergraduate Communication majors;
2) Communication minor and health communication certificate; and
3) We teach most of the graduate courses leading to a Master’s or Doctoral degree in Communication through the College Graduate Program in Communication.
On the research front, our Department is the most highly funded Communication program in the nation. New figures reveal that we have secured more than $35 million in extramural funding over the past 15 years. Almost all of this research is focused in health and risk communication and investigates ways to increase the effectiveness of media or classroom-based prevention programming.
