Welcome to the Department of Communication at University of the Pacific. Guided by a long, proud tradition of excellence at Pacific, we pride ourselves on offering both the classical courses associated with the discipline and those that reflect contemporary developments in the field.
We live in an "information now" society, and thousands of careers are open to graduates who possess the skills that are emphasized in our department. Our mission is to prepare students as leaders in their communities and careers.
As the following video demonstrates, students often develop a passion for the field of Communication through close interaction with our faculty and opportunities to explore through hands-on experience.
