Welcome to the Department of Communication and Journalism

The Department’s primary educational mission is to offer challenging liberal arts degree programs that include personal and professional practices in the contexts of communication, mass communication, and journalism. Through the study of human communication we seek to understand and to improve the human condition. The Department fulfills this liberal arts mission through its undergraduate programs in Communication, Media Studies, and Journalism, and through its graduate programs in Communication.

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions and following institutional, state, and federal safety guidelines, the Department of Communication and Journalism has adjusted the way we connect with you. To best serve our students and align with public health advisories, in-person availability will be limited for the fall semester. Assistance through our main office will continue to be available through phone and email Monday through Friday, 8:00 am-4:30 pm. Individual instructors are available by email, phone, or scheduled Zoom session.

For general assistance, please contact Kristen Libby at kristen.libby@maine.edu or call (207) 581-1935 and leave a message.
