Who We Are
The OU Department of Communication provides a broad-based liberal arts education and promotes communication research and development. Communication courses explore the process of human interaction in interpersonal, intercultural and political contexts. Graduates from the OU Department of Communication find challenging careers in higher education, management, public relations, consulting, nonprofits, and government. It is consistently one of the largest departments in the College of Arts and Sciences based on the number of undergraduate majors each year.
We are racing to raise money for our student scholarship fund! Help support the OU Department of Communication win the race! Philip Graham, Shay Glover, Alaina Zanin, Candace Foutch, and Michael Kramer are all participating as a relay team in a marathon to raise awareness about the Communication department student scholarships, and we need your help as well.
“I was awarded a fellowship during my fourth year. The financial support allowed me to spend an extended period in the research setting. I would not have been able to finish my dissertation on time, or possibly at all, without this support and for that I am truly grateful." - Alaina Zanin, PhD Alum, Relay Team Member
Donations raised throughout our campaign will go directly to support student scholarships and graduate fellowships within the Department of Communication. Scholarships within the department help us to recruit and retain the best and brightest students, keeping the doors of opportunity open to all future Sooners!
Through our campaign, we hope to reach as many people as possible, so please share our campaign link on social media and through email! We appreciate your dedication to the OU Department of Communication students. Feel free to use our hashtag: #CommDept
