Communication studies examines the creation, expression, and analysis of messages in our personal, professional, and public lives. Communication studies students learn to manage message processes within and among individuals, groups, organizations, and societies. They explore verbal and nonverbal communication, organizational and business communication, rhetoric and criticism, argumentation and persuasion, and communication technology.

Communication studies majors learn principles and practical skills useful for careers in business, industry, government, non-profit organizations, social services, and education. Graduates enter such professions as law, business, public relations, event planning, public service, teaching, management, human resources, training and development, marketing, sales, public administration, politics, and ministry.

Some students may wish to concentrate on a particular aspect of communication study. Although there is no required sequence of courses for any single area of interest, the following general guide may be used to assist students in providing a focal point for their communication study.

Interpersonal Communication

Courses that focus on interpersonal communication are designed to provide students with skills and knowledge to pursue a variety of career goals that involve interpersonal interactions with others. This area of interest is appropriate for students seeking careers in business, non-profit organizations, sales, public relations, customer service, counseling, hospitality services (e.g. travel or hotel industry) or other careers or professions which emphasize effective human relationship skills.

Organizational Communication

Courses that focus on organizational communication are designed to enhance the student’s marketability in careers requiring skills in the management of human relationships and communication flow within contemporary business, public service, non-profit, and professional organizations.

Persuasive Communication

Persuasive communication emphasizes study in rhetoric, public address, and argumentation. This area of interest is appropriate for students planning careers in business and industry, non-profit organizations, sales and marketing, the ministry, law, politics or other careers in which persuasion, rhetorical, and analytical skills are important.

Student Organizations

The department also proudly sponsors the student honor society Lambda Pi Eta, the Communication Ambassadors, and the Texas State forensics team and LBJ Debate Society. The Elton Abernathy Forensics Society is Texas State's competitive speech team. The LBJ Debate Society is named for former President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was involved in debate as a student at Texas Sate University. Both teams travel locally, regionally, and nationally.
