Texas Tech University

Communication and Languages

You're a communicator, like the news anchor who keeps us informed or the newspaper columnist who keeps us thinking. Your skills may help a political candidate get elected or boost sales of a new product. You can work in mass media or study one-on-one communication. You'll find a program that keeps you on the cutting edge of this constantly evolving field.

Why Texas Tech?

You'll have experiences that will shape your future, like Kelley Coffman, BA/Public Relations, 2007. She applied her classroom knowledge at an internship with the United States Olympic Committee. Kelley traveled to Brazil as a U.S. Soccer Press Officer where she coordinated press conferences, wrote press releases and served as media liaison. 

"Now I know what I am capable of and can't wait to see what else is next for me."

Kelley Coffman, BA '07
