The Department of Communication Studies is dedicated to its students by providing innovative and diverse leadership, intellectual rigor, and collaboration in a culture of scholarship.
Communication Studies students will find many opportunities to be involved in the department. Being an active member of the department will help you build character, gain leadership skills, encourage scholarship and create lasting professional relationships with your professors and peers, all of which help you build your portfolio.
Students who have shown excellence in scholarship within the department and the University may be asked to join Lambda Pi Eta (LPE). LPE is the National Communication Association's official honor society at four-year colleges and universities. There are LPE chapters worldwide.
The Ashland University chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) was formed in Spring 2013. PRSSA is the foremost organization for students interested in communications and public relations. PRSSA helps you enhance your education, broaden your network and launch your career in public relations.

With the suspension of face-to-face instruction for the spring semester, the Bateman Team faces additional challenges. Though we have to change our tactics in light of students not being on campus, the goals of the campaign remains the same: to educate and engage.
To help achieve these goals, the Bateman students have created the Instagram account @count_au_in, which includes educational posts about the Census, and opportunities for AU students to engage with each other around this information. The account will be deactivated on March 21. Be sure to check it out to learn more about the Census!...Read more
