“Communication is more than just learning about nonverbal cues and behavior, it’s also about reflecting in on yourself to see how your surroundings, past experiences, and culture can influence your identity and mindset. My degree has not only made me more aware of others, but it has also made me more self-aware and honest with myself. “
— Taylor Brochu, Recipient of the Outstanding Communication Scholar Award and Co-Recipient of the Outstanding Graduating Senior in Communication Award, Spring 2024
“I am so glad that I found the communication discipline at USM! The experience studying towards my degree was so rewarding. With the support, guidance, and knowledge bestowed by involved professors, I feel prepared to pursue any avenue I choose. I’d recommend this program to any student who is considering coming to USM!”

“I was offered the chance to move to NYC and train with a company called SoulCycle – the masters of indoor cycling. As a passionate teacher, I knew that this was my chance to spread my wings a little bit more and find out more about myself – a core value I learned at USM..”
