Communication arts is the study of human communication in a highly technological society. By providing students with a theoretical and practical preparation for a wide range of careers, Xavier's communication arts program develops professionals who possess not only the appropriate technical skills, but more importantly the informed judgment and moral confidence that a liberal arts education can provide. The communication arts program prepares students for professional work in the communications industry and in other business and non-profit settings. This education relies upon experiences both in and out of the classroom.
