Welcome to the Department of Communication at University of the Pacific. Guided by a long, proud tradition of excellence at Pacific, we pride ourselves on offering both the classical courses associated with the discipline and those that reflect contemporary developments in the field.
We live in an "information now" society, and thousands of careers are open to graduates who possess the skills that are emphasized in our department. Our mission is to prepare students as leaders in their communities and careers.
Looking Back at KPAC
The impact of a Pacific professor doesn't stop after you graduate. Hear from some of our Communication alumni who returned to Pacific on Homecoming weekend and shared their insights with Dr. Alan Ray at the KPAC radio studio.
The Communication department offers graduate-level instruction leading toward the Master of Arts degree. The graduate degree program combines training in communication theory, methodology and practice. It is intended for students who desire knowledge and skills for solving work-related communication problems and for those who intend to enter doctoral programs.
