The Department of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh is one of the premier centers of the study of communication in the world. We collaborate with students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels to inform their lives through practical knowledge and scholarly criticism.

Our students want to make positive change in the world; we prepare them for this by teaching them to think critically, speak confidently and persuasively, and solve problems. We are committed to cultivating a fundamentally diverse, inclusive, supportive, and self-reflexive environment for all of our students, staff, and faculty members because it allows us to make the greatest positive impact.
