About

Courses in the Communication - Politics and Policy at the University of Pennsylvania explore communication among and between political elites and other policy influencers, the media, and citizens. Through this concentration students will gain an understanding of the attitudes, information-processing and behavior of citizens, political elites, political institutions and political systems.  

Overview

Key facts:

  • Communication is an interdisciplinary field that draws from the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The undergraduate Communication program focuses on the theoretical, critical, and empirical examination of fundamental communication systems, institutions, processes, and effects. Comm majors gain deep insight into how communication shapes our individual and collective social, political, economic, and cultural lives; both historical and contemporary, local and global. 
  • Our Communication - Politics and Policy majors at the University of Pennsylvania learn and employ a range of theories and research methods, including quantitative approaches such as survey research, experiments, content analysis, and computational science; and qualitative approaches such as historical, textual and discourse analysis, focus groups, and ethnographic fieldwork. In doing so, they produce scholarship that is rigorous, relevant, and multi-modal. 
  • The major in Communication is granted by the College of Arts and Sciences, but the major curriculum is designed, administered, and taught by the Annenberg School for Communication.
