The Department of Communication is committed to the professional development of its graduate students. In addition to research colloquia, research lunches in each of the areas of the department, data sessions, reading groups and other research occasions, the department sponsors professional development workshops for graduate students.

These workshops are taught by department faculty members, department alumni and other experts as needed.
