CWU offers four communication majors: Communication Studies, Digital Journalism, Public Relations and Film Studies. The department also offers several minors: Communication, Organizational Communication, Advertising, Cinema Studies, Film Production and Screenwriting. Communication at CWU is student-centered and covers everything from gathering and disseminating written, spoken, and visual information to the processes, effects, and theories of human communication. Students are prepared for communication careers in journalism, public relations, film, advertising, business and industry, government, social and community service, and for graduate work in communication, law, counseling, or the ministry.

The Department of Communication is a leader in providing experiential learning by way of award-winning student media, agencies, and major-specific clubs. Students learn by “doing their discipline” in a weekly student newspaper, student lifestyle magazine, weekly student newscast, student-run video production agency and student-run public relations agency.
