Areas of Study

Harness the power of artistic language and performance

The department of human communication and theatre at Trinity University is a single administrative unit with two complementary, but relatively independent, academic programs, each with its own major and minor. Students following each track learn theory through a well-balanced curriculum and have chances to apply what they learn through participation in theatre performances, forensics competitions, and academic conferences.

Human Communication

The human communication department emphasizes the study of human communication as a humane, artistic discipline grounded in personal choice and examines how people develop, adapt, and transmit messages within and across various cultures and channels.
