UTEP's Department of Communication continues to evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century student in professional, educational, personal, and border contexts. Our five majors in organizational and corporate communication (also offered online), media advertising (also offered online), multimedia journalism, digital media production, and communication studies are growing in terms of both faculty and students, as we strive to offer the most up-to-date theories and skill sets. We also offer a film minor and a graduate degree in communication studies. Our faculty represent the best in intercultural communication research; many faculty members focus on Latina/o communication issues in the United States, and we also have a number of faculty focused on global issues and international contexts. Faculty members have engaged in cutting edge research on entertainment education, positive deviance, environmental communication conflict, organizational communication, media production and binational journalism, Latina/o health issues, and Latina/o participation in politics, media, and community organizations. Our faculty members also include award winning teachers and community-based practitioners.
