Communication majors learn to create and deliver messages that inform, persuade and mobilize people in the world around them. Developing effective visual, oral and written communication is the key to professional success.
At Kean, our communication majors learn from established and award-winning journalists, scholars, filmmakers, writers and public relations professionals. Students prepare for the real word by writing and reporting for Kean’s student newspaper, producing content for our radio and TV stations, and creating PR campaigns.
Our close proximity to New York City, a global communication, media and entertainment center, offers students opportunities to land meaningful internships that prepare them for the next step in their careers.

My favorite aspect of the Kean experience has definitely been the culture. Once you're a part of the Kean community, there's this natural feeling of unity and pride that follows throughout your years here and even after graduating. Everyone here has different backgrounds and many stories to tell."
PRSSA - the Public Relations Student Society of America - is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. Members of Kean's PRSSA chapter gain the experience and practical knowledge employers are seeking.
The experience the communication professors have in the industry is second to none and when choosing Kean, that was a huge factor. When you have professors who have previously worked jobs you aspire to have, you can benefit from their contacts and learn so much from them.”
