From the Chair
Welcome to our Department! We have been around since 1915, then a Department of Public Speaking, which makes us one of the oldest programs in the country. The Department of Journalism was established in 1948. The Departments of Speech Communication and Journalism and Mass Communication merged in 1994 to become the Department of Communication and Journalism.
As a Department we have a long, respected tradition of success and student-centered education. Our undergraduate students have gone on to careers in the private and public sectors and to graduate school. Our graduate students have become professionals, teachers, and professors.
Our Department´s mission is to understand and to improve the human condition through the study of communication practices. We offer challenging liberal arts degree programs in Communication, Mass Communication, and Journalism, and graduate programs in Communication and Mass Communication. Our programs address personal and professional
practices, social contexts, and theoretical understandings of human-to-human and technologically mediated communication.
To our many alumni, we extend continued best wishes and, please, don´t be a stranger. To our current majors and graduate students, you are what make this a great Department. To prospective students, what are you waiting for?
The Department of Communication and Journalism, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS), and Honors College at the University of Maine invite applications for a full-time, academic-year, tenure-track Assistant Professor beginning September 1, 2014. Full application instructions here.
