Welcome new School of Communication Undergraduate Students!

Our programs in the communication arts and sciences are distinguished by global innovation and a strong commitment to nurturing emerging artists, scholars, and professionals. In your classes, you’ll learn from outstanding, generous faculty members, all leaders in their fields. Outside of class, you’ll learn how to put your new knowledge into practice through engaging, creative co- and extra-curricular activities, internships, and other opportunities that help prepare you for the future.

Orientation will look slightly different this year as Northwestern takes the necessary measures to ensure the health of students, faculty, and staff amid coronavirus. Nevertheless, we are preparing opportunities to get to know each other when you arrive on campus and are excited to begin learning and working with you in September!
