Majors in Communication analyze the social, cultural and psychological impact of communication processes, technologies, and media using both quantitative and qualitative methods.


The Communication Department at Stanford University has traditionally focused on three questions: How do communication practices and particularly journalism shape political life? How do media interact with the human psyche? And how do changes in media technologies and practices produce changes in culture over time? Students explore these questions at several levels, including a core curriculum, intermediate and advanced coursework, and optional internships. 


Majors also have opportunity to do advanced research projects. Students will graduate with the analytical and critical skills needed for success in graduate programs, professional schools, or immediate career entry.
