Established in 1961, the Communication Department has become one of the largest undergraduate majors at Boston College. Over the past 50 years, the Department has grown from three to fourteen full-time faculty; from a handful of students to more than 900 majors; and from an orientation primarily devoted to teaching the composition and delivery of speeches, to the broad gamut of theories and methods encompassed by communication.
