Although we are going through a transition in leadership, we will continue to offer the quality courses, superior instruction, and high caliber research, scholarship and creative activities that have made The School of Communication and Multimedia Studies one of Florida Atlantic University's largest and most dynamic program areas.

We look forward to the challenge of building on our strengths and of exploring new opportunities. Whether you are a current or prospective student or a potential community/industry partner we welcome you and we look forward to growing together.
