There is no greater tool in the world than successful communication in all forms—written, spoken and conceptual. The Ohio State University’s School of Communication provides students with the training and skills to harness the power of communication. 

Graduates of the Communication program from Ohio State University have a broad knowledge of contemporary communication challenges and are equipped to apply their knowledge and understanding to a variety of practical situations.
