The School of Communication Studies is located in modern facilities, and is comprised of faculty who present a diverse range of communication training and research. Undergraduate students leave with strong research and writing skills, practical internship experiences, and a cultivated appreciation of human communication.

JMU is located in Harrisonburg, VA, a Main Street Community of nearly 50,000 in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, about 25 minutes from Shenandoah National Park.

Successful applicants will complement the strengths of existing faculty.

Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate an interest and ability to secure external funding, develop cross-disciplinary work, and contribute to graduate education.
